Years ago, I worked with a member of Congress who had this basic rule: Never repeat details of a conversation with the President of the United States. He would say in general terms what he and the President talked about, but he not say exactly what the President told him. The rule served my boss well. It’s too bad Rep. Eric Anderson of Priest Lake didn’t use similar sensible judgment before shooting his mouth off about his unfair treatment during the Idaho Legislature’s reorganization for this session. Anderson’s actions only validated leadership’s decision not to give him a committee chairmanship or vice chairmanship/Chuck Malloy, From The Inside. More here. H/T: Kevin Richert.

Question: Did Eric Anderson get what he deserved from GOP House leadership for filing an ethics complaint against Rep. Phil Hart?
