(Newser) – The man who exposed his sexual relationship with evangelist Ted Haggard is now among four men claiming sexual encounters with Larry Craig, the Idaho Statesman reports. Mike Jones, who published a tell-all of his relationship with Haggard, says Craig paid him $200 for sex, while an IT consultant claims the two had sex in a Capitol Hill house in 1986.

Two others say Craig made passes at them, while a fifth charges he slid his palm underneath a bathroom stall divider last year in a manner similar to the account an undercover cop gave in June when he arrested Craig for solicitation. The Stateman acknowledges that there is no evidence other than the men's testimony, but extensive research into the claims produced no undermining evidence.
