Memory Lane: Lincoln Day Past

Since we've been involved in checking local history from past Huckleberries columns, I thought it might be interesting to see what was happening on the blog a year ago. This post is from March 12, 2012. Remember?

The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee's February 28 vote to retract the former Arizona sheriff's invitation to speak at the Lincoln Day Dinner has been tossed by the party's executive board. Mack will be the featured guest speaker, as originally scheduled, at the March 24 Lincoln Day Dinner at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, according to a press release sent out by party chair, Tina Jacobson. Mack was slated to headline the event, a fundraiser for the Kootenai County Republican Party, but his appearance was canceled following a vote during the February 28 meeting of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee. It was later alleged, based on a private investigation, that the deciding vote for disinviting Mack was a forged proxy ballot.

Question: Is the Kootenai County GOP as divided today as it was a year ago?
