Eye On Boise

‘I’m a loooooser!’

Rep. Jim Clark, R-Hayden Lake, earned himself the “crow” in the House this week for getting his bill, HB 129, overwhelmingly killed. The mock statue of a crow is presented to any representative whose bill or motion gets fewer than 20 votes. This time, Clark’s colleagues cawed like crows as the item was delivered to Clark’s desk, and added an additional insult: Rep. Rich Wills, R-Glenns Ferry, presented Clark with a small stuffed bear that screeches, “I’m a loooooser!” The trophies will remain on Clark’s desk until another representative’s bill suffers a similar ignominious fate.

HB 129 would have given county prosecutors and their deputies the same early retirement benefits as police officers.
