‘He’s doing it for himself’

Idaho Statesman Dan Popkey offers an interesting column today comparing Idaho Sen. Larry Craig’s case to that of former Sen. Bob Packwood, R-Ore., who resigned from the Senate after an ethics committee voted to expel him for sexual harassment and misconduct, then went on to a lucrative career lobbying Congress on behalf of various industries and interests. Popkey’s point: That Craig, too, could have a highly lucrative career as a lobbyist if he can “reconstruct his image and make him employable.” Popkey suggests that could be behind Craig’s unrelenting push to pursue every legal option and stay in office despite intense pressure to resign, and concludes, “He’s doing it for himself.” Read his full column here.
