Sen. Risch called for jury duty, excused

Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey reports that Idaho Sen. Jim Risch spent Monday morning at the Ada County courthouse after being called for jury duty - but was excused after he explained his schedule to 4th District Judge Darla Williamson. Risch told Popkey that the Senate reconvenes next week, and "I have to cast a vote and if I'm not there, there's a chance a U.S. marshal will be looking for you or me." He said the judge replied, "I think I will excuse you." You can read Popkey's full post here.
