I realize that I did not say this about Senator Vitter, but Craig’s behavior is so reckless and repulsive that an immediate exit is required.
UPDATE: Craig’s statement this afternoon:
“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,” said Craig, who is married, and up for reelection in 2008.
“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.”
I don’t believe him. Read the statement by the arresting officer. He must think the people of Idaho are idiots.
But even if I did believe him, this would make his judgment too flawed to be in the United States Senate in a time of war. He has to go.
