Marty: Jeers To D’s For Booting Dustin

JEERS ... to Idaho's Democratic Party. Meeting in Worley last weekend, the state Democratic Convention voted - with only one dissenting vote - to complete its platform in private. Say it ain't so. Tell us the champions of openness and transparency, the party that condemns Republicans for conducting business behind closed doors, didn't just do exactly that. According to's Dustin Hurst -- and there's no reason to doubt it -- delegates decided he was an unfriendly observer. Hurst works for Idaho Freedom Foundation Executive Director Wayne Hoffman. So what? Even if Hurst worked for the GOP, what's the difference? Out went Hurst, along anyone else who wasn't a delegate/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Did Idaho Democrats compromise themselves at their state convention in Worley by excluding the media and other public from the platform discussion?
