Raul Wants Distance On Crane Flub

Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador’s spokesman asked that a photo including Labrador alongside Idaho House Assistant Majority Leader Brent Crane, R-Nampa, be replaced on the Statesman’s website. The photo accompanied my column Friday exploring Crane’s erroneous claim that civil rights icon Rosa Parks was standing up to the federal government in 1955 when she refused to obey a Montgomery, Ala., city ordinance that she give up her seat on a bus to a white man. Crane invoked the memory of Parks during his debate last week in opposition to Gov. Butch Otter’s bill to establish a state-run health insurance exchange under the U.S. Affordable Care Act, saying, “One little lady got tired of the federal government telling her what to do”/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.
