Craig pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. The story of his plea broke in late August 2007,
at which point the
Idaho Statesman newspaper ran a lengthy article detailing accusations that Craig had had relationships with several men over the years. Craig denied that he was gay or that he had solicited sex in the airport, saying, "I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct . . . In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously."
Though more men have since come forward alleging sexual encounters with Craig, he has continued to deny the rumors. "I've been in this business 27 years in the public eye here," he told the Idaho Statesman. "I don't go around anywhere hitting on men, and by God, if I did, I wouldn't do it in Boise, Idaho! Jiminy!"
