Posted on 10/04/2007 11:07:35 AM PDT by yorkie
A Minnesota judge on Thursday rejected Sen. Larry Craig's bid to withdraw his guilty plea in an airport sex sting, a major setback in Craig's effort to clear his name and hang onto his Senate seat.
The judge took a narrower stance apparently.
Good, now please submit your resignation, Mr. Craig.
IMHO, he should resign immediately, and save himself, and the Republican Party further embarassement and humiliation.
If congress members have to resign over disorderly conduct charges, then we ought to be able to get rid of quite a few more of them.
One of the few times in recent memory I appreciate a judge’s ruling.
Now....what about Leisure suit Larry Craig?
I don’t know about Craig. All I know is ever since this broke it creeps me out to use public bathrooms, even the ones at work.
100 percent agree.
I’ve got no grief for Craig; but, I bet you $10 to a donut had he been a ‘rat the judge would have allowed him to withdraw the plea, meaning the judge is a ‘rat.
I’ve seen it posted that the judge was not a “rat.” Craig’s problem is that he acts like a rat. He could not tell the truth if his life depended on it.
The judge may have had pity on him if he had decided to step down as he suggested he would. But his greedy attempt to hold on to power in the face of his idiocy was just a bit much for anyone especially a no nonsense judge.
Make no mistake, this is all Larry Craig’s fault. I won’t be one bit surprised if the fool tries to hold on to power even in the face of his defeat. Deviancy has no morals.
Maybe Sen. Craig should have just admitted he was a sucker all along.
And that would be a bad thing?
I wish you guys would stop drinking the kool aid for this pervert.
It’s never good to assume you know what someone meant, and I drink wild berry Tang.
I read the 27 page decision on Fox. Craig has not been truthful. The Judge bent over backward for him, er.., anyway, Craig claims to have been handcuffed and cop said never happened. He also said he was confused, but there is a trail of phone calls back and forth where he said he was conferring with his attorney, etc. Judges do sometimes vacate guilty pleas, but not this time. There was just too much fairness and the facts did add up to Disorderly Conduct (if not the more serious charge of Invading Privacy which was dropped). Guilty. Next case.
