In April, a woman came forward and told Gotcha! that Sen. Craig paid her for sexual relations about eight or nine times a year, spending between $500 to $1,000 a night for her services. The senator and the escort’s dealings dated all the way back to July YR-06, according to the woman.
Sen. Craig denied the allegations, but Gotcha!’s story prompted an FBI/IRS investigation into Sen. Craig’s dealings. However, after a one-month investigation, both federal agencies announced they would not pursue charges against the senator. The escort apparently did not cooperate with federal authorities.
The woman has not spoken with the press since her initial interview with Gotcha! and declined to comment for this story.
Craig still plans to run for re-election next year.
