AP - Federal regulators filed court papers Friday arguing former Senator Larry Craig misused campaign money when he spent it for his legal defense. Regulators want $140,000 in fines and they want him to repay $216,000 to his campaign.
Craig used the money for his legal defense for his arrest in 2007 for an airport bathroom sex sting.
Senator Craig says he was on official business at the time so the money could be used for his defense.
