IdahoGirl: 75 Show For Recall Rally

IdahoGirl78 reports from rally/counter-rally: “About 75 people were present in favor of the recall, all with signs and I would have to say the average age was over 50.  I'm not saying that's a bad thing but most do not have children so I think they represent a small fraction of our community.  There were only a few of us that showed up for the Anti Recall.  We were small in numbers but loud in voice and we also didn't have 8 weeks to plan.  I talked to a few people and I would say most are operating on misinformation.  Some were also angry with us on our support and one lady called us socialist for wanting a park.  One gentleman who chatted with us went over to check it out, he was not in favor of the recall.  He told us that they were asking people to sign up to help but he said that what they were asking people to sign looked just like the petition, which he found to be somewhat underhanded.  I know most there would sign the petition anyway but it makes you question what they will tell people when they go door to door.” Coeur d'Alene Press report + video.
