Boss Denney Continues Lockdown

On Jan. 19, House Speaker Lawerence Denney (pictured) ordered the doors to House members' basement office areas locked down and open by card access only. “Anyone without a House State ID badge will not be allowed into those spaces until the security guard has cleared it with the Representative or staff member they wish to see,” Denney directed in an email. The lockdown continues today; asked about it, Denney said, “They are going to remain locked at least until we're done with the Occupy bill, and then we will go to caucus and see if our caucus wants to reopen that. There are some, I'm sure, that like that locked down”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Do you think Occupy Boise presents a legitimate threat to Idaho lawmakers? Or is House Speaker Denney using the controversy to further distance legislators from the general public?
