Senator Larry Craig Watch: Craig Will NOT Resign September 30

Share

Jason Gabbert (L) and Anthony Wright (R) protest in support of Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), during arguments inside the Hennepin County District Court building in Edina, Minnesota, September 26, 2007. A Minnesota judge said on Wednesday that he would make no immediate decision on U.S. Sen. Larry Craig’s bid to take back the guilty plea he made after a sex-sting arrest, and the Idaho Republican left it unclear whether he would resign next week as he said he would.

Not good news for Senator John Ensign, Chair of the NRSC and the GOP Senate Caucus.

Larry Craig will stay in office until judge rules

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) will stay in office until the judge rules on his motion to withdraw his guilty plea, the senator said in a statement.

“Today was a major step in the legal effort to clear my name. The court has not issued a ruling on my motion to withdraw my guilty plea. For now, I will continue my work in the United States Senate for Idaho.”

Best case for the GOP was for Craig to go and go quickly. Now, the GOP will suffer a slow protracted pervert moment.

Stay tuned………

Republican Senator Larry Craig of Idaho walks from the Senate Chamber in the Capitol in Washington September 18, 2007.

  1. i dont understand what the difference between being leaving if guilty of it, to staying since it (if determined) isnt a crime that was commited? i mean wasnt it about the public sex part? even if it were perfectly legal? im confused…

  2. i dont understand what the thinking is for leaving if guilty of it in court, to staying since it (if determined) isnt a crime that was commited?
    i mean wasnt it about the picking up dudes for public sex part? even if it were perfectly legal? im confused…he isn’t exactly going to be KICKED out for it either way.

  3. Aaron,

    Senator Craig pled guilty to a crime in a court of law.

    Soliciting public sex whether it be gay or straight is illegal and a crime.

    If Craig stays in the Senate there will be an ethics invesitgation and the Senate could censure or expel him.
