What is there in the Idaho atmosphere that lets crazy things happen? Now the Kootenai Democratic Party has been invaded by a gang of ultra-conservative Republicans who have filed for Democratic Precinct Committee positions along with Larry Spencer, who is running for County Assessor — as a Democrat. Kootenai County Democrats are baffled. What have we done to deserve this unfriendly takeover? Have these party-hopping wanderers been swayed by the County Elections brochure, which lists options for Constitutionalists or Libertarians to participate in the primaries as "Democrats or Non-partisan"? Maybe they flipped a coin and chose to gang up on Democrats? Or did they just move so far to the right that they fell off their Flat Earth?/Mary Lou Reed, Inlander. More here.
Question: I suspect Kootenai County Democrats have things under control now, and will turn back the takeover challenge by Larry Spencer & his uber-cons. It might be harder to defeat Spencer in the Democratic Party primary for county assessor, however, since he'll be running against a write-in. What do you think will be the end result of Spencer's takeover attempt?
