Craig Sticking It Out (GOP Freaking Out)

Larry Craig is going to try and finish his term.

Remember this?

The Washington Post is reporting that the GOP is threatening to drag Craig through public hearings if he doesn’t resign:

Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho is a tough guy to run out of town.

Not that his Republican colleagues aren’t trying. Worried that the disgraced lawmaker intends to remain in the Senate indefinitely, they are threatening to notch up the public humiliation by seeking an open ethics hearing on the restroom scandal that enveloped Craig last month.

Its go time GOPpers.  Start up those hearings.  I’m sure they’ll do wonders for your party’s popularity.  LA Times Top of the Ticket:

His decision will not please Republican colleagues who wanted the latest scandal distraction gone. Just the other day, as Craig continued serving beyond his own Sept. 30 deadline, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he still felt resignation was the “right choice.” McConnell cancelled a media availability in Washington this afternoon to avoid talking about the Craig situation.

Right now the GOP is in a bad place.  Yet another hypocrite Republican homophobe is dominating the headlines, and now there is no easy way out for the Republicans.

  1. I thought Craig sticking it out was what got himself in trouble in the first place.
