Mack Eager To Speak To Local Repubs

Ex-Arizona sheriff Richard Mack said Friday (of the challenge by some Kootenai County Republicans to his scheduled Lincoln Day speech: "If Republicans support the Constitution, less government, individual liberty, less taxation, and standing for States' rights and against a $16 trillion debt, then they will like my presentation. I absolutely guarantee it." He said he's honored to be invited to speak at the event. "I have quoted (former President Ronald) Reagan and Lincoln frequently in my books and throughout my career," Mack said. "Jeff Ward is president of the Reagan Republicans. Does he not know that Reagan was once a Democrat?" Mack said that while he was registered as a Democrat, "I was the first sheriff in American history to sue the federal government and the head of the Democratic Party, Bill Clinton, on the issue of state sovereignty." He said he won that case in the U.S. Supreme Court/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
