Senator Larry Craig resigns effective September 30 over a Minneapolis men’s room sex sting.
Sen. Larry Craig, surrounded by his family, Gov. Butch Otter, State Schools Superintendent Tom Luna and Congressman Bill Sali, resigned from the U.S. Senate, effective Sept. 30.
He thanked his family for supporting him, and thanked Idahoans for letting him serve as senator. â€œI am grateful for the opportunity they have given me.â€
With his wife at his side and Otter standing behind him, Craig said, “It is with sadness and deep regret that I announce it is my intention to resign from the Senate effective Sept. 30.â€
And who will succeed Craig?
The Senator should have announced his retirement after he pled guilty in June. But, blind ambition and arrogance lead him to embarass his wife, family, GOP and fellow Idahoans.
