Python logging via script

I'm using a python script to automate several things in our environment. When the script runs it seems to send an extra return when trying to sign in. I've used different variations of login methods such as waitforstrings with an array, but it always turns out the same way.

Script excerpt:
for eachDevice in strDevices:

CurrentTab = crt.GetScriptTab()
CurrentTab.Screen.Synchronous = True
CurrentTab.Screen.IgnoreEscape = True
CurrentTab.Screen.Send("telnet " + eachDevice + "\r")
Login = CurrentTab.Screen.ReadString(":")
if Login.find("sername")>-1:
CurrentTab.Screen.Send(Username + "\r")
elif Login.find("ogin")>-1:
CurrentTab.Screen.Send(Username + "\r")

Old code (still happened here and there was a delay too using this code)
#while True:
#CurrentTab.Screen.Send(Username + "\r")

ACS5.5 username:
% Authentication failed (notice how no username is entered)

ACS5.5 username: [username]
ACS5.5 password:

At this point it logs in successfully. The extra return seems to be only when it initially connects.

SecureCRT ver 7.2.5
