LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – A spokesman for Sen. Larry Craig said Thursday that he may never return to Washington as a lawmaker.
Craig, a 62-year-old Republican, remains in Idaho, said spokesman Sid Smith, as reported by AP.
“He doesn’t have any plans to go back to D.C. next week,” Smith said. “That doesn’t mean he won’t, just nothing is planned. Everything is still up in the air. We’re still debating about whether he’ll be returning to the Capitol, at all.”
Craig said two weeks ago he planned to quit on Sept. 30, then indicated there was a slim chance he would try to stay in the U.S. Senate if he’s able to undo his Aug. 1 guilty plea to the reduced misdemeanor charges in a bathroom sex sting.
The next hearing in the case is Sept. 26.
