Larry Craig Has Given Up His Senate Seat

Idaho senator Larry Craig resigned today amid pressure from both Republicans and Democrats to do so. Craig was arrested last week during a sex sting in a men’s restroom in a Minneapolis airport. The senator pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge earlier this week.

“I apologize for what I have caused,” Craig said following the announcement of his resignation.

The three-term senator will officially step down at the end of this month.

Update (2007-10-04): It looks like Senator Craig won’t be resigning after all.
