Seems Larry ‘wide stance’ Craig refuses to go away. He now states he will serve out his term, inspite of a previous announcement that he would resign if the Judge didn’t allow him to change his plea in the bathroom trolling episode.
The judge told him no, in very explicit terms:
“The defendant, a career politician with a college education, is of, at least, above-average intelligence,” Judge Porter wrote in a ruling issued Thursday afternoon. “He knew what he was saying, reading and signing.”
The Rethugs are highly pissed, but I for one don’t care..if anything this will help the Democrats. Why would it help the Dems? Because every time someone in America sees that asshat, they will be reminded of what a bag of batshit the Rethugs are.
Larry says he can still be an effective Senator..RIGHT..and Gonzo was going to stay because he could still be an effective AG.
These guys are SO desperate. It gives one pause to wonder why in the blue hell they just won’t go into that good night. Why??

The article also tells us how Freddy supports and aligns himself with various lawyer groups who historically are despised by the Rethugs on The Hill. Its 3 pages long so bring your lunch.
WaPo evidently did their homework for this piece..its a good read check it out in the link above.
