I join Hugh Hewitt in saying that Idaho’s Senior Senator, Larry Craig, should resign.
For those of you who haven’t heard, he was arrested, “at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men’s public restroom” (Via Hugh).
I first read about this earlier this afternoon (Pacific Time) on Townhall’s blog. When I saw the headline, I thought it was a reference to old unsubstantiated reports about the Senator seeking sexual liaisons in public restrooms.
Given those reports (which now apparently have more substance than I once believed), this man should have been understood that people were aware of his unsavory behavior. That he continued (despite the reports) suggests a terrible lapse in judgment. Terrible.
Not only that, a grown man, particularly a man in public life, should know better than to do what he did. Public restrooms are not trysting spots.
I expect I’ll have more to say about this at a later time.
UPDATE: Just saw that Glenn posted on this, asking “And what is it with these guys?”
