Happy Hit Man Claims Innocence

You'll find no more enthusiastic practitioner of the political dark arts than Idaho House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star. He could have offered “Dracula” author Bram Stoker a few pointers. Moyle has never been shy about his machinations. When he sought to hamstring former House GOP Caucus Chairman Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, in last year's Republican primary election, Moyle didn't sugarcoat it. “My goal is to make Ken's life miserable because he's making my life miserable,” Moyle volunteered. Moyle's equally glib in his disdain for Attorney General Lawrence Wasden. The AG has a pesky habit of forthrightly telling legislative right-wingers their legislation won't survive a constitutional challenge. So Moyle attempted hiring his own legislative legal counsel to, presumably, tell him what he wanted to hear/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you consider the House legislative leadership of 2013 to be better/worse than the Lawerence Denney leadership of 2012?
