Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, who served as vice-chair of the House Ethics Committee that voted unanimously in September to recommend that Rep. Phil Hart be removed from the House tax committee, had this response to Speaker Lawerence Denney’s announcement today of Hart’s removal from the panel: “I think he should’ve done it right away. Why did he wait so long? … I think he sent a message that it probably wasn’t as important as maybe those of us who are on the committee thought it was”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
Question: Do you agree with Jaquet that House Speaker Lawerence Denney should have acted on the House Ethics Committee recommendation to remove Hart from Rev & Tax committee immediately?
