Gohmert Responds to Senator Craig Scandal

Local reaction on the resignation of Senator Larry Craig.

The Idaho Republican decided to step down Saturday after a week of furor surrounding his arrest last June on a sex charge, a charge he denies.

United States Congressman Louie Gohmert said Sunday Senator Craig's actions are offensive and that he needs to clarify.

"He owes the American public and the people of Idaho an explanation. Were you lying now recently when you said you weren't guilty or were you lying to the judge back then. He owes it to us to set the record strait," said Congressman Gohmert.
