Judge won't let Craig withdraw guilty plea

MINNEAPOLIS - A Minnesota judge on Thursday rejected Sen. Larry Craig’s bid to withdraw his guilty plea in an airport sex sting, a major setback in Craig’s effort to clear his name and hang onto his Senate seat.
“Because the defendant’s plea was accurate, voluntary and intelligent, and because the conviction is supported by the evidence ... the Defendant’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea is denied,” Hennepin County Judge Charles Porter wrote.
Craig can appeal Porter’s ruling, but it wasn’t immediately clear if he would.

I wonder if he will actually resign or not.

It will be interesting to see who replaces him.
