Boise GOP Meets RE: Rep. Patterson

Boise Republicans were expected to weigh in at a meeting on the political future of Rep. Mark Patterson amid calls for his resignation after the disclosure of his guilty plea in a 1974 sexual assault case in Florida. Patterson, a first-term GOP lawmaker from Boise, has been invited to appear Tuesday at the Legislative District 15 precinct committee meeting. Some Republican officials including Sen. Fred Martin of Boise said they will seek his resignation. It was not clear if Patterson planned to attend the meeting. Martin has arranged extra security for the meeting to be held at a Boise retirement home. Some members of the 15-person GOP committee said they're worried about their safety as they discuss the emotionally charged issue/John Miller, Associated Press. More here.
