Idaho Sen. Larry Craig is planning to attend the ceremony next weekend at which he and 11 others are to be inducted into the “Idaho Hall of Fame.” Craig is joined on the fame list by new inductees Gov. Butch Otter, Lt. Gov. Jim Risch, BSU football coach Chris Petersen and more. The Hall of Fame board picked its choices (its first since 2002) last March, well before Craig’s arrest and guilty plea in a sex-solicitation sting. Board member Harry Magnuson told the S-R’s Meghann Cuniff, “Larry Craig has made a great contribution to Idaho over the period of 20-some years. … At the time it was considered, this other matter had not come up.” Read the full story here at spokesmanreview.com.
