Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, leaving a press conference in the lower level of Idaho's state capitol, passed the lobbyist room, which, since the capitol renovation, is located in a former vault, still with its historic (but no longer locking) vault door. Bush had to stop and have someone snap a photo. He said, “We'll send this to our friends in Tallahassee - this is where they put the lobbyists!” Ducking inside, he asked, “Is this a joke?” Then, walking out of the room (he's the blur in this photo), he pronounced it “a much better way of doing it.”
