Judge Charles Porter ruled today that he is denying U.S. Sen. Larry Craig's motion to withdraw his plea.
Update: Craig made the argument that he didn't fully understand the significance of his acts in the Minneapolis airport in June, or the charges that applied to them when he was arrested by Sgt. Dave Karsnia.
In his ruling today, Judge Porter called that argument "illogical."
