If nothing else good comes from his decision to serve out his term, and literally nothing else might, at least it extends the shelf life on bits like this. According to Bob Novak, an unknown number of Republican senators knew about his “weird, weird conduct” in public bathrooms and did nothing. What would he have them do, though? If they’d tried to shame him into resigning by outing him, the left would turned him into a gay martyr and used it as evidence of Republican intolerance. Instead they kept quiet, and now they’ve got Novak stupidly accusing them of “covering up” a la Foley, who was abusing his power by preying on young interns. They can’t win.
