Hill;9/11/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 103, p14
The article reports on the response of Minority Whip Trent Lott to Senator Larry Craig's insistence that he did nothing wrong in the airport bathroom in Minneapolis, Minnesota. According to Lott, members of his leadership team wanted to make a more extreme statement than their e-mail to the press saying that they had asked for an ethics investigation of Craig. Lott said that he did not try to give him advice or tell him what to do.
