McCain Calls For Craig Resignation

Lewd Larry Craig’s losing friends. Senator John McCain called for Craig to step down from his Senatorial post. Appearing on CNN’s cartoonish Situation Room, the presidential candidate said,

I believe that he pled guilty, and he had the opportunity to plead innocent and so I think he should resign.

My opinion is that when you plead guilty to a crime, then you shouldn’t serve. That’s not a moral stand. That’s not a holier-than-thou. It’s just a factual situation.

I think he should resign. I don’t try to judge people. But in this case it is clear that it was disgraceful.

Minnesota’s Senator, Norm Coleman, also suggested Craig call it quits.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney – whose relationship with Craig has been ruined – told Jay Leno Craig’s actions hurt the party: “It’s great fodder… but it harms our reputation with the American people, which is also – already badly tarnished.”
