Larry Craig Reconsidering...Yet Again

This is almost laughable. From the Idaho Statesman comes this piece about Craig's practically nonexistent legal options and his choice to resign, or not resign, or resign.

The likelihood that U.S. Sen. Larry Craig would resign grew today, as fellow Republicans all but abandoned their Idaho colleague, and the prospect of a timely legal defense dimmed.

Craig, who announced Saturday that he intended to resign from the U.S. Senate effective Sept. 30, backed away from that announcement this week by saying he would resign only if he wasn’t able to clear his name first.

The three-term Idaho Republican is trying to withdraw his guilty plea to disorderly conduct, a charge that stems from his June 11 arrest for lewd conduct in the men's room of the Minneapolis airport.

Craig hopes to undo that charge as well as dismiss an ongoing investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee. However, hopes of resolving the ethics complaint by Craig's self-imposed Sept. 30 deadline also dimmed. And so far, Craig's lawyers haven't filed anything in Minnesota courts in an effort to withdraw his plea.

Right now, it looks as though he will step down Sept. 30, said Craig's spokesman Dan Whiting.

"Larry Craig expects to resign, that's the most likely scenario," Whiting said. "But he's definitely leaving a door open. Itss a small very, very small door, very slightly ajar."

It nearly smaks of "flip flopping"...but far be it from me to use that phrase when referring to a well-established GOP man. From my home state, nonetheless. Hey, boys, NO TOE TAPPING any more. And no "wide stances" either.
