ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request made by Idahoans to Senator Larry Craig in Idaho. They urge the senator to resign and step down from office after news broke out that he had been arrested in the airport bathroom in connection with the sex sting scandal. According to some sources, the urge to resign is not connected with the scandal but because of Craig's callous disregard of the plight of the salmon population in the state and his support in the licensing of dams in the state.
