Who Tipped Roll Call To The Senator Craig Story?


Editor and Publisher:

Declining to offer specifics about the source, McArdle said the tip came in midweek and was confirmed by Roll Call through police reports obtained from law enforcement officials in Minnesota.

“We have been working the story since we got the tip, getting the specific arrest report,” he said. “We had to go through their different filing systems and we were able to expedite that process.”

Roll Call also reported that Craig had pleaded guilty Aug. 8 to misdemeanor disorderly conduct stemming from the incident. McArdle said he was surprised that no one else, including the local Idaho press, had reported on the arrest and plea.
