Trib Jeers Wayne (Hoffman’s) World

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, opionator Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune gives Jeers to Wayne Hoffman, Idaho Freedom Foundation exec, for rallying around a gun bill sponsored by beleaguered Rep. Mark Patterson in the 2013 Legislature:

If Hoffman wants to cloak a misogynistic, twice-accused and once-convicted sexual offender who has a casual relationship with the truth with the IFF imprimatur, that's his business. But why is he tap-dancing away from it? Patterson's behavior is "not our deal," Hoffman said. "We don't have a dog in that fight." And the timing of the email? Just a coincidence. It was prepared Nov. 8 - before Popkey's piece - and then released after the story emerged. "That's just the way things work out sometimes," said the man who heads up an online newsgathering organization, IdahoReporter.com. Who are you going to believe - Hoffman or your lying eyes? Full Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Has Hoffman and the Idaho Freedom Foundation tied themselves to Patterson with the emailing?
