  • Craig Says He Will Stay

    In a public statement issued this afternoon, U.S. Sen. Larry Craig vowed to stay in office, but says he has retained legal counsel regarding his June arrest. Responding to the Idaho Statesman’s story published on the front page this morning, Sen. Craig called the story a witch hunt, and repeatedly denied that he is gay.

  • Larry Craig Arrested

    We're only just getting this newsbreak now: U.S. Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in June on lewd conduct charges in a Minneapolis airport.

    Details as we get them. Roll Call has the report, but their Web site is clogged to traffic, and no wonder.

    We've got an excerpt of Roll Call's report after the jump.

  • Ethics Complaint Filed Against Craig

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington announced today they've filed an ethics complaint against U.S. Sen. Larry Craig.

    Their issue: They believe Craig may have violated the Senate's Code of Conduct by engaging in disorderly conduct, the only conviction to which Craig has plead guilty.

  • Sen. Craig's Statement

    Sen. Larry Craig's office has released this statement today:

    “At the time of this incident, I complained to the police that they were misconstruing my actions. I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct.

    “I should have had the advice of counsel in resolving this matter. In hindsight, I should not have pled guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously.”

  • The Radio Dance

    Wherein I do my best to hop to it when radio talk shows come a-calling.

    On the air this morning at KBOI 670 AM and on KFXD 630 AM.

    Callers are pretty one-sided so far: Craig needs to go. Resign immediately. Most of these are disgruntled Republican/Libertarians who say they're tired of members of Congress lying.

    Certainly it doesn't help that some of these more conservative folks are angry at Craig for his positions on immigration or gun control.
