To Be Censured?

State Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls, right, and state Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, respond to audience during the North Idaho Pachyderm Club meeting at Templin's Resort today. Henderson is one of four legislators who face censure at the hands of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee for supporting the state-run health exchange. You can read more about that here. Nonini opposed the state health exchange, which is an Idaho component of Obamacare. The controversial health exchange was approved by the legislature, with the strong support of Gov. Butch Otter. Other Kootenai County legislators supporting the exchange -- and targetted for local GOP censure -- are Sen. John Goedde, R-CdA, Rep. Luke Malek, R-CdA, and Rep. Ed Morse. The local GOP will meet Tuesday. (Photo: Duane Rasmussen)

DFO: I suspect Frank Henderson was running Post Falls as mayor or the Kootenai County Courthouse as commissioner long before some -- most? -- of the uber-cons calling for his censure were residents of Idaho. What do you think?
