Several GOP members of Congress are urging Larry Craig to resign -- Senator John McCain, Congressman Pete Hoekstra, and this guy:

...[Senator] Norm Coleman of Minnesota [urged] Craig to step down....

Coleman said in a written statement, "Senator Craig pled guilty to a crime involving conduct unbecoming a senator."

So, er, whatever happened to that charge Garrison Keillor leveled at Coleman in Salon a couple of years ago, just after Coleman won the Senate seat?

Norm got a free ride from the press. St. Paul is a small town and anybody who hangs around the St. Paul Grill knows about Norm's habits. Everyone knows that his family situation is, shall we say, very interesting, but nobody bothered to ask about it, least of all the religious people in the Republican Party. They made their peace with hypocrisy long ago.

Just curious. Haven't heard anything about it since '02.
