Yup. Now the FEC is getting in on the act. Seems Larry might have done something illegal by paying his lawyers with campaign cash — and LOTS of it, $216,984 ti be exact.

FEC sues former Sen. Larry Craig over use of campaign cash after MSP arrest:

BOISE, Idaho — Former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho was sued Monday by federal election regulators who contend he misused some $217,000 in campaign funds for his legal defense after his arrest in a 2007 airport bathroom sex sting.

Federal Election Commission officials said in their complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that Craig should repay the money and pay a fine.

The FEC contends the three-term U.S. senator’s campaign account, Craig for U.S. Senate, paid at least $139,952 to the law firm Sutherland, Asbill and Brennan in Washington, D.C., and $77,032 to Kelly & Jacobson in Minnesota for legal services related to his guilt.
