Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio A University of Utah political science professor says there's been a real change of attitude in Congress following the resignation of Idaho Senator Larry Craig.
There's worry in Washington, and according to Political Science Professor Tim Chambliss, the fear is that voters will do what they did in 2006.
In the wake of the Craig scandal, among others, Chambliss says many lawmakers have reason to be nervous. "With regard to the Senate, there are 34 Senate seats up [for election]," he said.
So Chambliss says many there have been more critical, and the public is now seeing someone like Larry Craig being abandoned by long-term colleges because polls indicate voters are again in a mood to punish.
