BREAKING: Senate Admonishes Larry Craig

Views

The Senate Ethics Committee issued a public letter of admonishment today to Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) for his conduct in connection with his arrest in the airport bathroom and his subsequent conduct.

We have the letter here and details here.

From a quick read through the letter, the Ethics Committee hits him harder than I might have expected. It’s not just the arrest they tag him for but his efforts to withdraw his guilty plea. Oh, and there was the matter of him slipping the officer his Senate business card. They didn’t like the appearance of that either.
