Item: Republican committee: No vetting: Only two members stood in favor of resolution/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Committeeman Bjorn Handeen (pictured) proposed the resolution to establish an endorsement event to endorse candidates for the 2014 election cycle - but only after it was determined that the candidate would abide by the platform. He read a statement from a prepared text that essentially chastised what he called the "Stockholm Syndrome Republicans" who sit on the central committee. "In my six-year engagement with this party, I have noticed there are two types of party activist," he read. "There are those, and I count myself one of them, who see that our country is in rapid decline, and so we are doing our best to organize somewhat of a defense. "But there is another, more common sort of party activist, and you will never catch them doing something useful - unless it is for a liberal news blog, I guess.
Question: So are Bjorn Handeen and Carol Goodman the only true Republicans in Kootenai County?
