Larry Craig receives standing ovation.

The South Idaho Press reports:

craigA standing ovation for Sen. Larry Craig’s service to Idaho was the highlight of the Mini-Cassia Lincoln Day Luncheon presented by the Republican Party committees of Cassia and Minidoka counties Friday afternoon at Morey’s Steakhouse in North Burley. […]

Craig was given a painting by renowned local artist Robert Moore. … But Craig was careful to clarify the status of the painting after taking the microphone. He said the painting would be on loan until he finishes his term in office next year. Only then would he accept it as a gift.

“We’re going to remain ethically correct for the remaining nine months,” Craig quipped.
