Larry Gets Some Love

Posted By on Wed, Apr 9, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Sen. Larry Craig still has some fans out there.

The United States Chamber of Commerce gave the troubled senator its Spirit of Enterprise award, honoring his record for voting in favor of "pro-growth" legislation.

While some are calling for Craig's resignation, the chamber takes note of his voting record during the last session. According to a written release, Craig voted in line with the chamber's agenda 90 percent of the time. The award is give annually to members of Congress who rack up at least a 70 percent voting score.

Craig's continuing legal problems haven't earned him the same accolades.
