Johnson: MLKJr Was A Republican

I was unaware that Martin Luther King was a Republican, until I read the Kootenai County Reagan Republican news item on Facebook announcing this week's speakers for the group's regular weekly meeting. Ruthie Johnson, an Idaho Human Rights Commission member, is going to explain why she thinks the civil rights leader was a Republican. I'll withhold judgment until I hear about her explanation. Commissioner Todd Tondee is the main speaker. He'll speak about county statistics that should matter to everyone. The weekly meeting will be held at Fedora's on Kathleen at noon Thursday.
