Republicans Still Trying to Push Larry Craig Out

September 30, 2007 at 12:30 pm 2 comments

Larry Craig may not know how to quit the Senate, but the Republican leadership is ramping up their efforts to show him the door.

The Senate hearing would examine the original charges in Craig’s case, including the allegation of “interference with privacy,” for peeping into the bathroom stall occupied by an undercover police officer. One senior Republican aide imagined “witnesses, documents, all in front of the klieg lights.” The committee also could look for “a pattern of conduct” — which means combing court records in other locales to discover whether Craig had prior arrests that haven’t come to light.

Wow. That’s nothing like the standing ovation that Senator David Vitter received for admitting that he had sinned by cheating on his wife with prostitutes.

As Rod McCollum points out in his new column in the Advocate:

Once again, the unvarnished truth from the party’s core constituency: The right-wing brand of family values is arbitrary, politically expedient, and antigay.
