US Senator Larry Craig resigned tonight as Senate co-chairman for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, within hours after news broke of Craig's guilty plea to disorderly conduct after an incident in a men's bathroom.

Even the Idaho GOP are bailing
on Craig: "Sergeant Dave Karsnia‚Äôs report is absolutely damning in describing the Senator lurking outside Karsnia‚Äôs stall for two minutes, and began to follow a familiar pattern used by men 'seeking to engage in lewd conduct.'"
(Not to be confused with Republican Florida State Rep. Bob Allen, who was arrested
this summer for allegedly trying to pay an undercover cop to let Allen perform oral sex on him. Or with married Senator Bob Vitter (R-LA) who, it was revealed
this summer, had been engaging the services of prostitutes.)
