Seems the Republicans are getting fed up with his "I'm going.... Maybe, I'm going.... I'm staying until the court case.... I'm staying, forever...." You get the picture.
The Washington Post has a piece today about just how fed-up the GOP may be: GOP Is Ready to Roll Out the Klieg Lights for Craig. It outlines what may be going through their minds. Moneyquote:
Worried that the disgraced lawmaker intends to remain in the Senate indefinitely, they are threatening to notch up the public humiliation by seeking an open ethics hearing on the restroom scandal that enveloped Craig last month.
They are even talking not just about the Ethics Committee looking into the disorderly conduct charge to which Craig pleaded guilty but also the "interference with privacy" charge that he pled out of for this lesser charge.
There is one thing that is more specious. Remember that Craig said that he was only reaching down to pick up a piece of toilet paper off the floor? [ickkk!] Why would he have used his left hand to pick up a piece of paper on the right side of the stall reaching across? uh, wouldn't that demand that he be more flexible than a yogi?
In addition, the officer said he saw Craig's wedding ring when he ran his hand along the bottom of the partition. Why would he have wanted the person in the next stall to see his wedding ring? Would it make it more acceptable if the other person thought he was married?
ummmm, i'm confused...
