Brownback: Censure for Craig?

GOP presidential candidate says Senate could throw in Vitter for good measure.

In an interview for Bloomberg's "Political Capital With Al Hunt," Kansas Sen. and GOP presidential candidate Sam Brownback raises the possibility that the Senate will censure both bathroom-cruising Republican Sen. Larry Craig and prostitute-courting Republican Sen. David Vitter.

Brownback says the fact that Craig's crime is only a misdemeanor means it's unlikely that he'll be expelled from the Senate. But, he says, "if you look at what took place, you look and you go, 'This is not good; this is bad. This shouldn’t have taken place.'"
