New York Times: Why Are R’s Ready To Toss Craig?

The Republican Party is in quite a rush to keelhaul Senator Larry Craig for his run-in with the vice squad in an airport men’s room. Disclosure of the senator’s guilty plea to disorderly conduct set off a frenzy to demand an investigation by the Senate’s somnolent Ethics Committee and to strip Mr. Craig of his committee seniority. Some of the senator’s peers simply demanded that he resign. No similar leadership chorus for judgment has been heard about any number of other scandalous revelations on the party’s plate/New York Times.

Question: What would the Democrats do if one of their senators was caught in this same compromising position?

Hat Tip: Kevin Richert
