Larry Craig Says He Will Complete Senate Term

LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Sen. Larry Craig vowed Thursday to finish his Senate term, despite a setback in his effort to clear his name of a sex-related guilty plea.

Craig, an Idaho Republican, will now face a Senate Ethics Committee investigation and the ire of Republican Senate leaders, who say he has gone back on his promise to step down after news broke of his arrest in a men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport.

“If he loves his party and he loves the Senate, the honorable thing to do is to resign,” said Sen. John Ensign of Nevada, who is in charge of the GOP’s Senate election fundraising.
