Lawmaker sells house, fights to live in business

The Idaho Statesman's Dan Popkey reports today that House Transportation Chairman Joe Palmer, R-Meridian, is embroiled in a fight with the city after he and his wife sold their home and took up residence in a converted office area at the back of their consignment store, a city zoning violation. Palmer says the city is after him, and said of Meridian Mayor Mayor Tammy de Weerd, “She despises the ground I walk on.” You can click below for the AP version of Popkey's report; you can read his original report here, but beware if you're somewhere where you don't want your computer to suddenly start playing a loud video: the Statesman website may first make you listen to a noisy video advertisement.
