WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in June in a Minneapolis airport men's room by a plainclothes police officer who was investigating complaints of lewd conduct, according to a police report. Craig later pleaded guilty this month to charges of disorderly conduct. Craig, an Idaho Republican, was arrested June 11 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The police account, first reported yesterday in Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, said a plainclothes officer was investigating complaints about sexual activity in the men's public restroom.

Hopkins of Kentucky, according to a study released yesterday.Mr. Hopkins, who was running for governor of Kentucky much of the year, showed up for 36 percent of the House's 428 roll call votes in 1991, according to the annual study released by the private Roll Call Report Syndicate, which specializes in congressional accountability issues.

WASHINGTON - A House GOP committee chairman didn't mean to suggest that he would seek legislative redress against baseball if it selects a Washington Nationals ownership group that includes financier George Soros, an aide said yesterday. Tom Davis, a Virginia Republican who chairs the Government Reform Committee, was quoted Monday in Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, saying that Major League Baseball could face a political fight if it selects Soros, who has bankrolled liberal causes.

The roll call room in the city's Western District police station seems more like a memorial than a meeting place -- one of its walls is covered by brass plaques dedicated to the memory of officers killed on some of Baltimore's roughest streets. Yesterday, police officials added another plaque -- the 15th -- to the wall of honor. This one was for Officer Crystal D. Sheffield, 35, who died in a car accident in August while responding to a colleague's call for help. Calling Sheffield a hero, Mayor Martin O'Malley and Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said the officer and others were responsible for drops in violent crime citywide.

DENVER - Hillary Clinton's staunchest Maryland supporters are saying the right things as the Democratic Party prepares to nominate Barack Obama this week, trumpeting party unity and a chance to make history. But an aftertaste of regret lingers behind their words, raising questions about how hard Clinton backers will work during the next 70 days to see their primary rival elected. "I never thought when I graduated from college in 1965 that I would end my life without seeing a woman president," said Maryland state Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp, a Clinton superdelegate.

Sen. Hillary Clinton's win in Pennsylvania's Democratic primary underscores the need for the Democratic Party to bring the nomination battle to a swift and fair conclusion as soon as possible. The best way to do that is to move the Democratic nominating convention from the end of August to the end of June. Why? When Democrats vote in Indiana and North Carolina on Tuesday, they will probably render a split decision, with Sen. Barack Obama handily winning in the South and Mrs. Clinton eking out an industrial Midwest victory.

The Maastricht Treaty of 1991, tightening the unity of the European Community, is still alive. British House of Commons approval, after Prime Minister John Major made it a test of confidence in his government, means the treaty is as good as ratified in all 12 EC countries. A single currency for most of Europe may become a reality by the next century after all.The high drama of the treaty's rejection in the House of Commons last Thursday, followed by passage on Friday after Mr. Major threatened an immediate election if it lost, brought him from the pits to the peak of his career.

Washington. -- No wide-awake American will be startled by redundant evidence that power corrupts.Still, there is something notably brassy about what Speaker Tom Foley and his flock of lock-step House Democrats -- another herd of independent minds -- have decided to do regarding the five delegates to the House of Representatives from Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.Most Americans have better things to do than monitor decisions of the House Democratic caucus, so most Americans do not know that their representation in the House is soon to be diluted.
