Idaho Falls Paper Sez Craig Should Go

The Idaho Falls Post Register ran an editorial today by Marty Trillhaase headlined, “Craig should go.” Detailing Craig’s arrest, guilty plea and statement, it says, “It’s not at all clear how the context of this story will play out in the days ahead. But this much is clear: Craig engaged in deception, and because of that, he can’t be trusted. Craig’s credibility is shattered. He cannot seek another term in the U.S. Senate. And he can’t serve effectively in the remaining 16 months of his term. … Those supporters who begged him to run again now feel alienated and embarrassed. Which of his fellow senators will want to be associated with him and his scandal? In fact, Craig’s already parted ways with the Mitt Romney presidential campaign. And where in his home state – or anywhere else – can Craig appear in public without this story dominating the discussion? It consumes all the oxygen in the room — Marty Trillhaase/Idaho Falls Post Register.”
