A rapid fall from grace: Senator Craig resigns

Disgraced Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) announced his resignation earlier today. From the news conference:

"It is with sadness and deep regret that I announce it is my intent to resign from the Senate effective Sept. 30" ... "The people of Idaho deserve a senator who can devote 100 percent of his time and effort to the critical issues of our state and of our nation," Craig said. "I have little control over what people choose to believe. But clearly my name is important to me, and my family is so very important also."

Apparently, though, his family isn't important enough to stop him from soliciting sex with strange men in public restrooms. Of course, he's just another hypocritical Republican, who blathers on about "family values," but abandons them in his personal life. If only he had just paid whores to have sex with him, as David Vitter (R-LA) allegedly has, the rest of his party would still be backing him. That's manly; gay sex in public restrooms is not.
