Craig is a goner... He will not be re-elected.
For example, is it that surprising he left his booth without flushing after a cop flashed his ID and told him to leave? I mean, the crime was not flushing or not going to the bathroom prior to arrest?
I for one would be pretty upset if I found myself arrested and convicted for this series of non-events. Shouldn't they have waited until he plainly solicited sex? The cop seems to be saying the investigation was cut short because other people wanted to use the bathroom???? lol.
I'm inclined to agree. The illegal immigration thing alone might have done it - Craig was not just a vote there, he was an active promoter of shamnesty. He has heavy funding from Big Ag working for him in a state with few other sources of political funding but working against him is a heavily LDS-oriented south (Craig is, IIRC, a Methodist himself) that will not take kindly to this news.
Idaho is not a slam-dunk for a Republican Senatorial seat, BTW - anyone remember Frank Church? If Craig isn't defeated in the primaries I think the Republicans may have a problem.
