Did Democrats Boycott ISBA Lunch?

Senate Democrats “boycotted” a legislative luncheon with the Idaho School Boards Association this afternoon, to protest a series of controversial collective bargaining bills. Or so says one of the Democrats, Branden Durst of Boise. But Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett says Durst may have misspoken. Durst sent out the following message on Twitter Tuesday afternoon: “The ID Senate Democratic Caucus boycotted todays luncheon with the ID School Boards Assoc. as a sign of solidarity with voters and teachers.” The ISBA is pushing seven labor bills, including several that contain components of Proposition 1, rejected by voters in November. The Idaho Education Association opposes several of the bills. But did the Senate’s seven Democrats stage a concerted boycott?/Kevin Richert, The EDge, IdahoEDNews. More here.

Question: Have you ever boycotted something? What?
