Larry “Wide-Stance” Craig may not be stepping down now that Sen. Arlen Spector is defending him. The bad news is that we’re going to have to keep hearing about this for a while yet, the good news is that this story broke because Craig called a complete stranger and left it on their voicemail.
That’s right, he called the wrong phone number and left a message saying that he might not step down after-all. The person who got the message promptly gave it to a newspaper. You can read all about it here.
Dear god, if you’re in the middle of a scandal, and you’re a US senator, don’t leave voice-mails unless you’re sure you’ve got the right one. This is the lesson we learn from this.
