Craig Pleads Guilty

Another Republican is in trouble. Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) pled guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in Minneapolis, receiving a fine and probation. The charge stems from alleged lewd behavior in an airport men's room.

Notwithstanding what I said about Gonzales earlier, Craig needs to be quietly but firmly pushed to resign. This sort of conduct--regardless of the gender of the other party or the orientation of Senator Craig or the other person--in public is completely unacceptable in a party that stands for family values. By pleading guilty, Craig has admitted that he did something wrong, not to mention illegal, and he needs to be gone.
