Weiner was worse than Larry Craig

On June 18, the Baltimore Sun's editorial came out in defense of Anthony Weiner ("Why did Weiner have to resign?").

The item claimed that what Sen. Larry Craig, did was much worse.

Really? Sticking your foot inside another person's bathroom stall is worse than bombarding online ''friends'' with lewd photos and crude commentary?

I don't believe so. Nor so I believe such conduct is appropriate for a grown man, much less a husband and member of Congress.
