Craig admonished over menís room incident (Congress displaying their own impotence)
MSNBC ^ | 2/13/2008 | ap

WASHINGTON - The Senate Ethics Committee said Wednesday that Idaho Sen. Larry Craig acted improperly in connection with a men's room sex sting last year.

In a letter to the Republican senator, the ethics panel said Craig's attempt to withdraw his guilty plea after his June arrest at a Minneapolis airport was an effort to evade legal consequences of his own actions.

Craig's actions brought discredit on the Senate, the letter said.

Is this the same Senate that refused to impeach Bill?

Larry's behavior is boorish, but you don't see the ethics panel coming around to admonish Hillary over her dirty dealings!

Maybe he should have left the guy under his Oldsmobile. That would not discredit the Senate.

Craig, who lost several GOP leadership positions on Senate committees and subcommittees in the wake of the scandal, has been working with Boxer and other members of the Senate's environment committee on a global warming bill and other matters.

That right there is why the "private lives" of perverts like Craig IS our business. He has clearly been corrupted by his desire to remain in office. So in order to curry favor with Boxer he's signing on to an enviro-whacko agenda no uncorrupted Republican elected official from Idaho would ever remotely consider.

Sexual perversion is our business and the practitioners have no business serving in important positions where they might be blackmailed.

Maybe someone can explain to me why Democrats are Proudly Gay, but Republicans have to hide in the closet?

I thought being gay was a Good Thing. Barney Frank, call your ofice.

“Craig’s actions brought discredit on the Senate, the letter said.”

So in other words, his actions were completely redundant.

This has to be the BEST part of the article!!!

Craig, who lost several GOP leadership positions on Senate committees and subcommittees in the wake of the scandal, has been working with Boxer and other members of the Senate's environment committee on a global warming bill and other matters.

What a way to get your credibility back, go to the Goracle and do penance.
