A good question in Bob Novak’s downbeat column today:
The apparent disgrace of Sen. Larry Craig, a former member of the party leadership, is all the worse because several Republican senators and Senate staffers were not a bit surprised. That raises two questions. If so many people knew Craig was an accident waiting to happen, why was he not eased out of office? How many other examples of scandalous behavior are known but hidden?
I hope Novak is just spitballing, but he has so many good sources that I can’t help but worry that he has something specific in mind that he just hasn’t gotten on the record yet.
