Blake Hall resigns from national GOP role

Former Idaho Republican Party Chairman Blake Hall, a lawyer, longtime public official and prominent political player in the state, has resigned from his seat on the Republican National Committee, Idaho party Chairman Norm Semanko announced today, two days after Hall reported to the Bonneville County Jail to begin serving time for a misdemeanor stalking conviction involving an ex-girlfriend. Semanko released this statement:

“Over the weekend, Blake Hall informed me that effective immediately he has resigned his position as National Committeeman of the Idaho Republican Party.  Blake’s successor will be chosen by the Idaho Republican State Central Committee.  I am grateful for Blake’s many years of service to the Republican Party and appreciate that he put the Party first by submitting his resignation.”
