AP reports:

Senate Republican leaders called for an ethics committee review Tuesday into Idaho Sen. Larry Craig’s guilty plea in a police sting operation this summer in an airport men’s room.

Republican leaders also are ”examining other aspects of the case to see if additional action is required,” Sen. Mitch McConnell and other top GOP lawmakers said in a written statement.

They released the statement shortly before Craig’s scheduled appearance before television cameras in Boise, his first public comments since confirming his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

Craig is set to make a statement in Idaho at 4:30 pm EST.

UPDATE: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the Senate ethics committee earlier today.
