Tipping point for Senator Craig?
Senator Larry Craig may want to remain a Senator for the remainder of his term next year but circumstances revealed yesterday may make that proposition a bit iffy:
The male escort responsible for the downfall of Christian evangelist leader Ted Haggard is now alleging that embattled Senator Larry Craig also came to see him. Other accusations of Craig's homsexual behavior at a Washington, D.C. restroom in Union Station have previously been revealed by The Idaho Statesman after an exhaustive investigation. But this revelation, if true, may prove to be the tipping point that drives Craig from office.
While promoting his new book during a radio interview with KNWQ-AM in Palm Springs Wednesday night, Mike Jones hesitated from making the allegation on the air.
Management for the radio station says Jones told them he would reveal something about Idaho Senator Larry Craig on the "Bulldog Bill Feingold Show."
While he hesitated doing so on the air, a NewsChannel 3 camera was rolling when he made the accusation during a commercial break. Feingold asked whether the Senator had seen Jones in a hotel room. Jones responded, "No, he came to see me."
His constituents are in favor of him resigning. Senate Republicans want him out as does the national party. It is incomprehensible why he is trying to hang on with his reputation in tatters and his effectiveness severely curtailed.
Perhaps this last incident will open his eyes to the fact that his position is untenable and he must resign.
