Ethics Panel Says Senator Wide Stance Acted "Improperly"

WASHINGTON - The Senate Ethics Committee said Wednesday that Idaho Sen. Larry Craig acted improperly in connection with a men's room sex sting last year and had brought discredit on the Senate.

In a letter to the Republican senator, the ethics panel said Craig's attempt to withdraw his guilty plea after his arrest at a Minneapolis airport was an effort to evade legal consequences of his own actions.

In other words, Larry, your Senate colleagues, including three fellow Repignofascists, concur with the court and the arresting officer that you were trying to get your knob polished that day in the MSP airport. They also concur that your actions afterward were designed solely to cover your well-used ass from public scrutiny (that doesn't mean you did not want you ass scrutinized in private, however).

In typical righteous Repignofascist fashion, you blew off the ethics panel findings and act like nothing happened. Of course had a Democratic Senator been caught trying to get his knob polished in the MSP airport you'd be leading the chorus of righteousness demanding his resignation.

The good news, however, is that because of this incident you've read the handwriting on the wall and will not be back for another term. What are your plans for retirement Larry? Maybe move to Florida and open a consulting firm with Mark Foley designed to protect children from online sex predators? Maybe you'll have your offices in a men's room?
