Idaho Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll has made the Huffington Post, which quotes a report by Betsy Russell/Eye on Boise: The Idaho Spokesman-Review caught up with Nuxoll (R-Cottonwood) Wednesday to ask if she could clarify her comments. Nuxoll told the paper that while she meant "no disrespect" she stood by her statement. "I just want people to know the truth," she told The Spokesman-Review. "I felt badly for the Jews – it wasn’t just Jews, but Jews, and Christians, and Catholics, and priests. My thing was they didn’t know what was going on. The insurance companies are not realizing what’s going to end up in their demise.” More here.
