Senate ethics vice chair says ‘stay tuned’

Erica Bolstad of McClatchy Newspapers in D.C. gleaned what appears to be a hint that something is coming soon from the Senate Ethics Committee on Sen. Larry Craig, in her story today on the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force pushing the committee to either drop its investigation of Craig or also launch one of Sen. David Vitter. Bolstad reported in the Idaho Statesman, “The bipartisan committee is typically closemouthed about its work and rarely acts publicly. Vice Chairman John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he was aware of the letter from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, but because of ethics rules he wouldn't comment further on Craig's case. When a reporter suggested that there had been little movement since the committee was first asked to investigate in late August, Cornyn said: ‘I don't think it's fair to say nothing's happened, and nothing publicly has come to light, but stay tuned.’”
