A young man in a suit who just turned 21 a month ago is doing a job-shadow of Sen. Steven Thayn in the Idaho Senate this week – at the same time he’s running against one of Thayn’s colleagues, Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint. Christian Fioravant, who moved to Bonners Ferry about a year and a half ago, filed as a Constitution Party candidate for the Senate seat on Dec. 30. Thayn, who began shepherding Fioravant around the Capitol on Tuesday, didn’t know Fioravant was a candidate until Keough told him on the Senate floor that morning/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Is this as innocent as Thayn is trying to make it sound?
