Eye On Boise

‘Rarely trusted with anything sharp’

As a former lieutenant governor, Gov. Butch Otter today couldn’t resist a little joshing about his former job as he announced his appointee for the post, Brad Little. Otter said he made his pick from among “a terrific group of people that were willing to step forward and take that position, even after I told them, as the longest-serving lieutenant governor in the history of Idaho, I wanted to let them know that … the lieutenant governor rarely gets trusted with anything sharp or anything of value, and never the original of anything.” Amid laughter, he continued, “And even at that, there were many that did step forward and were very enthusiastic about it.”
