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 Statesmans story published on the front page this morning, Sen. Craig called the story a witch hunt, and repeatedly denied that he is gay.
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.
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.
Based on the nonfiction book of the same name by David Grann, the film seems like a cross between an Indiana Jones movie and a Joseph Conrad novel—one where the world seems full of possibilities, rather than limitations.
