Sen. Larry Craig, his wife, Suzanne, at his side, announces on Saturday his intent to resign at the end of September.
Idaho Sen. Larry Craig is apparently not absolutely certain he will resign on Sept. 30 following the discovery of, and ensuing media blitzkrieg about, his June arrest in a Minneapolis airport men’s room. According to Craig’s camp, the embattled senator is considering his options, including the possibility of reversing his guilty plea.
“It’s not such a foregone conclusion anymore, that the only thing he could do was resign,” Sidney Smith, Craig’s spokesman in Idaho’s capital, told The Associated Press.
“We’re still preparing as if Senator Craig will resign Sept. 30, but the outcome of the legal case in Minnesota and the ethics investigation will have an impact on whether we’re able to stay in the fight—and stay in the Senate,” Smith said.
