Larry Craig wants more time to deal with FEC demands

STATESMAN STAFFOctober 23, 2013 

BOISE — The Federal Election Commission has ordered the former U.S. senator to pay $140,000 in fines and return $217,000 to his campaign that he’d used for his legal defense after his 2007 arrest in an airport bathroom sex sting.

Craig filed the documents late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

Craig is asking U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson for another two weeks to file paperwork he hopes will help him avoid stiff financial penalties.

In Tuesday’s filing, Craig says the FEC doesn’t object to the delay.
