Idaho Statesman to Senator Craig: Come clean




A message to Idaho’s senior Senator from the state’s largest newspaper — it’s time to fess up:

Sen. Larry Craig has spent 27 years in Congress — with rumors about his sexual orientation following him almost from the outset.

Now, after the report of Craig’s arrest at a Minnesota airport restroom, Idaho’s senior senator must speak candidly with the people who have hired him for more than a quarter of a century. He owes this to voters — no matter how difficult that may be for him and for his family. And voters owe Craig a chance to explain himself.

So who thinks the next step is Craig running off to some fake treatment facility?
