Eye On Boise

From tin foil hats to leadership, Twitterverse weighs in on GOP convention doings…

Among the interesting tweets this afternoon from the Idaho Republican Party convention (#idgop) after the Credentials Committee voted not to seat the entire Ada County delegation:

Idaho Education News reporter Clark Corbin (@clarkcorbin) tweeted, “Ada delegate Ken Burgess says Peterson “clearly, clearly stacked” committees to give “tin foil hat caucus” majority control of convention”

From AP reporter Kimberlee Kruesi (@kkruesi), “Lots of anger over the credentials committee. One delegate went so far to say that ‘even Hitler had more subtlety than this.’”

From Melissa Davlin of Idaho Public TV’s “Idaho Reports” (@davlinnews), “Convention treasurer @jareddlarsen: If #idgop has to refund $75 for each Ada delegate & alt, would cost abt $15,000; ‘a devastating blow.’”

Teton County delegate Billie Siddoway (@Billie_Siddoway) tweeted, “Opportunity for Rep. Labrador to show leadership by bringing his supporters together to reject the credential cmte report.”
