Just in time for your toe-tappin’ restroom pleasure, The Unsinkable Larry Craig hints he may reconsider his resignation from the Senate, contest his guilty plea in appellate court, and bring the long shadow of his wide stance back to the Senate cloakroom, sayeth the Associated Press:
Sen. Larry Craig is reconsidering his decision to resign after his arrest in a Minnesota airport sex sting and may still fight for his Senate seat, his spokesman said Tuesday evening.
“It’s not such a foregone conclusion anymore, that the only thing he could do was resign,” said Sidney Smith, Craig’s spokesman in Idaho’s capital.
“We’re still preparing as if Senator Craig will resign Sept. 30, but the outcome of the legal case in Minnesota and the ethics investigation will have an impact on whether we’re able to stay in the fight — and stay in the Senate.”
Craig, a Republican who has represented Idaho in Congress for 27 years, announced Saturday that he intends to resign from the Senate on Sept. 30. But since then, he’s hired a prominent lawyer to investigate the possibility of reversing his plea, his spokesman said.
Read it all at the above link. This is apparently no joke, the guy is actually considering a “takes-back” on his resignation and guilty plea and conviction over disorderly conduct in a Minneapolis airport men’s room.
Craig has firmed his resolve and is hardening his position now, threatening to stick it out in the Senate, come what may. He’s not just playin’ footsie anymore . . . “Larry Craig: Bendin’ over backwards for Idaho!”
Stranger than fiction . . .
