Breaking! Craig Gives Up 4 Senate Seats

Item: Sen. Craig gives up four Senate committee seats; colleagues call for resignation/Associated Press and Rocky Barker/Idaho Statesman

More Info: Sen. Larry Craig has agreed to temporarily give up his seats on four Senate Committees at the request of Senate Republican leadership, while his political support eroded significantly today when three fellow Republicans in Congress called for his resignation. Craig gave up his posts as the top Republican on the Veteran Affairs Committee, Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior, and Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands and Forests.

Question: Is this the beginning of the end for Craig’s political career?
