Seems whenever I want to stop writing about Sen. Larry Craig, the senator himself makes it impossible.
On Tuesday, The Hill in Washington, D.C., published this little gem: Fellow Republicans are urging embattled Louisiana Sen. David Vitter to stay on the job, despite his connection to the "D.C. Madam" case. And guess who is among the senators offering counsel to Vitter?
“First and foremost, in these kinds of issues, it’s the state and the relationship you have with your state that really determines where you ought to go,” Craig told The Hill. “That was certainly my case. The Senate itself wasn’t going to judge me. I would allow the citizens of my state to do so. And there is still strong support there.”
Hmm. I'll take Boise State University's word over that of Sen. Intent-to-Resign.
According to BSU's most recent public policy survey, 57 percent of Idahoans do not think Craig should have decided to close out his term. Just 37 percent support Craig's decision to stay; 6 percent were unsure of refused to answer.
Some "strong support."
