Infamous Larry Craig Bathroom Stall Getting New Look

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The airport men's room where Idaho Senator Larry Craig was arrested is getting a new look.

New stall dividers that drop nearly to the floor will be installed to make it a less inviting spot for sexual liaisons.

Web sites had touted that restroom as a popular site for sex with strangers, and police reports over the summer described several cases of men ducking under the dividers, allegedly in search of sex.

In June, an undercover officer was in the men's room when Craig allegedly tapped his feet and swiped his hand under the divider in a way authorities said was a signal for someone who wanted sex. Craig says the officer misunderstood his actions.

The Minneapolis airport has more than 80 restrooms, but only two are being targeted for the new dividers, including the one now known for Craig's arrest.
