BOISE Ã¢â‚¬â€ Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig will announce Saturday he will resign from the Senate amid a furor over his arrest and guilty plea in a police sex sting in an airport menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s room, Republican officials said today, according to The Associated Press. The Idaho Statesman independently confirmed the report.
Craig’s office declined to confirm or deny a resignation.
Craig’s communications director Dan Whiting told the Idaho Statesman, “I won’t say either way.”
