Idaho Republican Larry Craig left the Senate after he pleaded guilty* of seeking gay-stranger-airport sex. What’s he doing now, you ask? What do former U.S. senators tend to do?

He’s a lobbyist, as my colleague Luke Rosiak noted on Twitter earlier this week, with clients including energy and timber interests.

Add him to the list of Republicans who left office after a sex scandal and then became lobbyists. Others include Bob Livingston, Tim Hutchinson, and Vito Fossella.
