Popkey: ‘Gov. Otter’s comeback kid’

Really interesting story from Dan Popkey in the Idaho Statesman this morning on "Gov. Otter's comeback kid," the new 30-year-old deputy chief of the Idaho Bureau of Prisons, Josh Tewalt, who rose to the $83,200-a-year position despite three DUI arrests and no college degree. Tewalt is a rising star on Otter's team; Otter officiated at his 2009 wedding at the governor's ranch in Star, and Tewalt wins praise for his political and people skills. You can read Popkey's full story here.
