Richert: Semanko Full Of Baloney

There’s no point in letting the corpse cool. At 5 p.m. Tuesday, a bipartisan citizens’ commission hit its final deadline, with no plan in hand to redraw the state’s congressional and legislative districts. At 5:53 p.m., Idaho Republican Party Chairman Norm Semanko issued a statement kicking the dead body — and declaring the redistricting process a waste of public money. You see, Semanko isn’t worried about getting fellow Republicans elected. Perish the thought. He’s worried about you and your taxpayer dollars. What a guy? No. What a crock/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Would you want the Idaho Redistricting Commission to have more Republicans than Democrats, as GOPoobah Norm Semanko suggests?
