Squabbling redistricters holding first Saturday meeting

Idaho's citizen redistricting commission, after squabbling yesterday, is holding its first Saturday meeting today; it's scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Capitol Auditorium (though it may not run that long), and you can watch live here. Here's a report from Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey on yesterday's squabble, which centered on new legislative district plans the GOP commissioners have submitted; they insisted on an immediate vote on one dividing line in north-central Idaho within those, over objections from the Democratic commissioners, one of whom, Commissioner Julie Kane, refused to vote and abstained, saying she first needed time to review it.
