You know something, I'm a bit sad about this.

GOP officials: Craig to resign Saturday

Don't get me wrong. I think all Repub hypocrites should resign. But David Vitter, Mr. diaper wearing john is still in the Senate. As I mentioned earlier, it's still illegal to solicit.
But Craig's behavior, while idiotic, doesn't really seem to come up to that level of illegality.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Craig is being run out because the GOP is terrified of anything that might possibly be anywhere in the neighborhood of "teh ghey!". And that's just really sad. And pathetic. There is nothing at all ever wrong with being homosexual. That's all.

There's another angle to it:

Idaho has a Republican Governor who can thus appoint a Republican Senator.

Senator Vitter is from Louisiana which has a Democratic Governor. Thus if Vitter resigned, the seat would go to a Democrat which is why the rethugs look the other way.

With Craig, if he stays in office, the rethugs risk loosing the seat to a Democrat. But with Craig resigning, it gives his Republican Successor a chance to get a year head start on next year's campaign.

I do agree with you on that reasoning. It's how they work.
But, and I never thought I'd say this EVER, but I really sort of feel bad about the railroadiing.
