Larry Craig’s slow, seemingly inevitable slide to retirement begins. From Republican leaders via CNN:
Senator Larry Craig has agreed to comply with Leadership’s request that he temporarily step down as the top Republican on the Veteran Affairs Committee, Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior, and Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands and Forests. This is not a decision we take lightly but we believe this is in the best interest of the Senate until this situation is resolved by the Ethics Committee.
Who wants to start placing bets on when Craig gets it over with and hangs his hat?
