Jeers To Ethically Challenged Denney

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune Jeers former House Speaker Lawerence (Boss) Denney, R-Midvale. The most ethically challenged Idaho politician of our time has the temerity to cast aspersions on the man he wants to succeed as secretary of state: Ben Ysursa. Among four Republicans seeking the job, Denney's peeved that the incumbent lent his support to chief deputy Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane. Foul, cried Denney. As the state's chief elections officer, Ysursa should stay neutral. He'd never do such a thing, Denney said. Oh, please. Ysursa broke no precedent. His immediate predecessor, Pete T. Cenarrusa, endorsed Ysursa in 2002. Leave it to Denney to heap hypocrisy to the steaming mound of political misdeeds that constitute his sorry record. Full Cheers & Jeers column here.
