If Looks Could Kill …

Tina Jacobson, who has filled in for Rep. Phil Hart at the Idaho Legislature, glares at state committeeman Matt Roetter at a Tea Party rally at Greyhound Park earlier this year. Write-in candidate Howard Griffiths was in attendance. And Tina apparently had learned for the first time that Matt wasn’t supporting Hart for re-election. Now, Matt is facing a move by local Republicans to oust him from his elected position for not supporting Hart in the general election. Earlier this morning, I published a post in which state GOP chairman Norm Semanko decreed that elected GOP party members must support Republican candidates no matter what.
