Idaho Paper Wants Craig Gone

Idaho Statesman: Pack it in, Larry - AMERICAblog: A great nation deserves the truth: "The largest paper in Idaho has called for Senator Larry Craig to resign. (Idaho Statesman):

It is difficult and unpleasant to call on Idaho's senior senator to end a career in public service. We don't do this casually, or unanimously. However, we cannot abide an elected official who didn't disclose a lewd conduct arrest until the story broke 77 days later -- a lie by omission and a violation of the public trust. We cannot believe Craig can effectively serve Idaho, under the shadow of his guilty plea on a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. We cannot afford, as a state with but four congressional representatives, to have a senator who merely provides fodder for bloggers and late-night talk show hosts."
