Why Does McConnell Refuse To Condemn Larry Craig?

This is the question on the minds of many Kentucky conservatives this week after the Idaho Senator admitted to pleading guilty for lewd conduct in a public restroom.

Perhaps everyone should take a look back to the amnesty debate when Louisville liberal McConnell used Craig to help him carry Teddy Kennedy's water:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) said he already has told Senate GOP leaders he will not support the immigration filibuster any longer. "They've had ample opportunity," Craig said of the Republican dissenters who successfully rallied a majority of their Conference to block the bill last week. Craig added that he supports McConnell's efforts to goad the conservatives into capitulating
Its not clear what use McConnell has for his good friend Larry Craig now, and why he is remaining so loyal to him, even after additional information is now coming out that some of Craig's conduct may have been criminal:

Though the senator denied being gay, it was not the first time he has confronted sexually related accusations. In 1982, he denied involvement in a congressional page sex scandal.
