Most molested 2007: On Top Magazine first reported on Larry "I am not (are too!) gay" Craig's bathroom adventures in 2006. Mainstream media picked-up the story in 2007 when the Idaho Senator was arrested during a sex-sting operation in a Minneapolis airport restroom.

Will you read The Gay Slant? Ms McAdam writes, "OTM has little to no
