The Minnesota airport men’s room where Sen. Larry Craig tapped toes with an undercover policeman has become a tourist attraction, complete with gawking visitors—including women—posing for photos in front of the infamous stall.
Can a souvenir stand be far behind?
“We had to just stop and check out the bathroom,” said Sally Westby of Minneapolis, on her way to Guatemala with her husband Jon.
“In fact, it’s Jon’s second time—he was here last week already.”
Royal Zino, who works at the shoeshine shop next to the public lavatory, said “it’s been crazy”.
“People have been going inside, taking pictures of the stall, taking pictures outside the bathroom door.”
