WASHINGTON, D.C. Idaho Sen. Larry Craig is not returning to the scene of the crime.

Craig, a Republican, is skipping the GOP national convention Sept. 1-4 in St. Paul, Minn.

He was arrested last year in a sex sting at a restroom in the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Craig's spokeswoman, Susan Irby, said Tuesday that he will stay in Idaho during the convention.

"Senator Craig is not attending the Republican convention because he is retiring and not running for election," Irby said.
