Recaller Orzell Claims Intimidation

At the Coeur d'Alene City Council meeting Tuesday night, RecallCDA organizer Frank Orzell of Coeur d'Alene, pictured, said (according to the rough draft of City Clerk Susan Weathers' minutes) “… that he had received complaints of intimidation.  John Montandon, 6269 E. French Gulch Rd., commented that he allowed the recall group to use his parking lot and as a result he received calls from clients stating that they were going to stop doing business at his store and believes that this is a form of intimidation.  Mayor Bloem noted that this is a very personal time for her and the Council being recalled and their families.  She respects the right for citizens to shop where they want, but she does not condone any threatening or intimidation.” Stop the Recall organizer Jennifer Drake commented later that she and other members of her group have been intimidated, too. She reportedly turned to Montandon in the audience and apologized to him for feeling intimidated for anything that was happening.
