Group Rips Simpson For Stones Show

The political silly season is off to an early start with the anti-tax group Club for Growth throwing its financial weight behind Idaho Falls lawyer Bryan Smith in his challenge to eight-term GOP Congressman Mike Simpson. Among Simpson’s outrages, says the club, is attending a 1999 Rolling Stones show in the MCI Center skybox of a Washington, D.C., lobbying firm. Simpson and his Oregon colleague, GOP Rep.

Having ponied up for the ducats, it appears Simpson’s true transgression is showing an interest in Mick Jagger and the boys/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here. (AP file photo, of Mick Jagger)
