Washington Whispers: Craig May Wait It Out

There’s lots of speculation that Sen. Larry Craig will quit, maybe as soon as this weekend, over the firestorm created by his guilty plea for disorderly conduct after allegedly acting lewdly and “peeping” in a Minneapolis men’s room known as a gay sex destination. Certainly the Republican leadership has sent the signal that it wouldn’t cry if he bailed, as demonstrated when he was removed from key committees. But now I hear that the leaders won’t push Craig to bow out now and instead expect him to announce that he won’t run for re-election in 2008/Washington Whispers, U.S. News & World Report.
