TGIF Wild Card — 4.20.12

Coeur d'Alene Held Hostage, Day 17: Two eyewitnesses told me they saw state Rep. Kathy Sims (in the most “garish patriotic jacket possible”) and Sharon Culbreth driving a couple around the Bentwood area Saturday, gathering signatures for the recall. Before you ask what a state senator from Coeur d'Alene is doing trying to recall Mayor Sandi Bloem and three City Council members, remember it's Kathy Sims. Who seems to believe meddling in city politics for alleged abuses by Mayor Sandi Bloem & three City Council members are of more concern that challenging state Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, in her own sphere of influence, the Idaho House of Representatives. Seems Sims & Culbreth pointed out addresses on a list to the couple in the back. Who obediently went to the door and asked for recall signatures. They ignored the other houses. Seems like Souza-Sims-Culbreth-Orzell are working their tax-opponent lists for their signatures. Popular groundswell? Hardly. Now for your Wild Card …
