Marty Jeers LeFavour’s Gift Video

JEERS ... to Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise. Idaho's only openly gay legislator, LeFavour has championed extending protection under Idaho's Human Rights Act to gays, lesbians and transgender people. As a Christmas present, LeFavour distributed DVD copies of "Brokeback Mountain" to 60 lawmakers at their homes. Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, took offense. Imagine returning from a St. Patrick's Day celebration to find a copy of "Clean and Sober" waiting for you. Or after participating in a Planned Parenthood rally, you discover an audio set of "Rush Limbaugh's Greatest Hits" at your door. LeFavour simply went too far/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here. (AP photo: Nicole LeFavour giving her farewell speech to Idaho Senate Thursday)
