Apparently Senator Larry Craig is right where he wants to be …
… getting a government paycheck while he appeals his Minneapolis disorderly conduct conviction:
“Sen. Larry Craig says he will file an appeal Monday over a judge’s refusal to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea stemming from his arrest in an airport bathroom sex sting.
In an interview Sunday with KTVB-TV, Craig repeated he will not resign his post in the Senate and said he will continue to work his legal options. “It is my right to do what I’m doing,” said Craig, an Idaho Republican. “I’ve already provided for Idaho certainty that Idaho needed — I’m not running for re-election. I’m no longer in the way. I am pursuing my constitutional rights.”
GOP Senators continue to lower the bar. Now it’s down to “I’m no longer in the way.”
