Sen. Craig is UNresigning???

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Toolbox, Sep 4, 2007.

    Flipping through the channels and caught Olbermann's Countdown on MSNBC .... he said there's an AP story saying Larry Craig and his toe-tapping issues is reconsidering his decision to resign on the Senate.

    WTF??? Anybody have any more info on this?

    Yes, he passed me a note under the stall to say he changed his mind.

    He never resigned. He announced his intent to resign at the end of the month. He left himself plenty of wiggle room.

    I was just about to revive the other Craig thread. Just saw this on MSNBC. Hilarious!

    Olbermann now saying Craig discussed it with his 3 adopted kids, and one of the kids is quoted as saying basically that Craig did nothing wrong.

    would the rest of the GOP really allow him to keep his post?

    My guess is he made the initial announcement to try and buy some time to wriggle off the hook.

    Whether his fellow GOP-ers are receptive remains to be seen.

    What are their other choices? I ask because I don't know. Can they vote to fire him?

    Well, they can't unelect him. They can try to open an ethics investigation, I suppose, but being gay or picking up random people for sex isn't unethical.

    They can strip him of all his committe seats, making him a basic non-entity.

    sc's right -- they can't unelect him, but they can make it so he has absolutely no power other than his vote, which is about 1-10th of what Senators typically do.

    They can make him sit alone in the cafeteria.

    Given that I doubt he has any intention to run again (he was borderline before all this came out), he could always switch parties if the Republicans want to act like he has cooties because he likes men.

    He could sit in the corner in timeout, but a variation of that got him in trouble in the first place, didn'tit?
