Not looking good for Craig

If you read through the transcript of Sen. Larry Craig’s Minnesota court hearing, one thing stands out: Judge Charles Porter doesn’t appear to be buying Craig’s attorneys’ arguments at all. That news was somewhat eclipsed on Wednesday by the Idaho senator's startling announcement that afternoon that he was delaying his planned Sept. 30th resignation from the Senate indefinitely.

“I think it’s an uphill battle," said University of Minnesota law professor Stephen Simon. "My guess is that Porter will not let them withdraw his plea.”
