Craig was a long-time Republican Senator who managed to end a long career when he supposedly solicited a little naughty time with an undercover cop in a Minneapolis airport bathroom. He claimed he was simply in a wide stance. Craig proved to an example of the 2006 Congress along with Mark Foley as example of the corruption of the Republican 2006 Congress. While he was not up for re-election in 2006, he became a poster boy for GOP malfeasant. He was going to quit after the scandal but he stayed until his term was up.
