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.'"
