Loebs: Chair’s Term Ends Tuesday

Grant Loebs, the chairman of the Idaho GOP’s legislative District 24 and a member of the state Central Committee – and also the Twin Falls county prosecutor – says in his view, state GOP Chairman Barry Peterson’s term ends on June 24, which is next Tuesday. “The chairman is elected for a two-year term,” Loebs said, and Peterson was elected at the party’s 2012 convention in Twin Falls on June 23. The chairman’s term is described in two ways in the party rules, Loebs said, both as a two-year term, and one that ends when the next chairman is elected and takes office immediately at the state convention, which could be slightly less than two years. “So one way or the other, he’s out on the 24th at the very latest,” he said/Betsy Russell, Idaho Statesman.

DFO: Sounds like Chairman Peterson should take a note from Congressman Labrador and admit defeat graciously. However, that wouldn't be as much fun for us at Huckleberries Online. So I say: Hang in there until the bitter end, Barry. We're not laughing with you.
