Craig Versus Jefferson And Integrity

The Politico: [1]

A Minnesota judge Thursday denied Sen. Larry Craig’s decision to withdraw his guilty plea.

“Because the defendent’s guilty plea was accurate, voluntary and intelligent, and because the conviction is supported by the evidence, the defendent’s conviction for disorderly conduct occuring on June 11, 2007, in the men’s public restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in Bloomington, Hennepin County, Minn., is valid,” Judge Charles A. Porter wrote in a 27-page opinion released at 1:40 p.m.

There has been no reaction yet from Craig. He initially said he would resign from his seat last Sunday, but decided to stay in office until the judge issued his ruling.

Actually, the most recent reaction from Craig’s office that I have heard of is that he is announcing he will not run for reelection.  He is also saying however that he’s going to stay in office until that time.

But here again, we have a major difference between the parties; The Republicans are doing everything within their power to get Larry Craig out of office immediately, if not sooner.  The Democrats, on the other hand, have made so much moves with “Cold Cash” Jefferson, and continue to defend him.

A short time ago, we were treated to democrats defending Bill Clinton.  Remember what the defense was?  “It’s all about sex”.  I would suggest to you, that if we take their statements about their value structure at face value, Larry Craig is all about sex.

Whereas, Jefferson is all about bribe money.

Which is the worst of these two offenses in your mind?

Understand…This is not a defense of Larry Craig… let me be very clear about this; I want him out of there, as I have stated several times previously.  But how do we judge the Democrats in the matter , particularly when they’ve been screaming for Larry Craig’s ouster, when they don’t lift a finger to oust Johnson, on something which by their own lights is a far worse crime?
