Trib: Jeers To GOP Emailer

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune has plenty of jeers to go around for those involved with the Idaho GOP convention, including: ”

JEERS … to LeeAnn Callear of Orofino. Regional chairwoman and a member of the GOP's executive committee, Callear is no fan of Otter. Here's what she told 375 of her nearest and dearest friends in an email:”I am unhappy that Butch Otter is a corrupt, vindictive, hateful, childish bully! I am ashamed that I helped put him into office. We knew he was an adulterer. We knew he was a drunk.”OK, that's walking up to the line and dangling a toe over it. But this is politics. Otter has a drunken driving conviction and a divorce on his record. Then Callear dragged Otter's wife, Lori, into her diatribe: “We knew his wife was a filthy-mouthed, mean woman. Why did we let this go so far?” Who's going too far, Ms. Callear? Complete Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Wow! Just wow! This is one of the best & brightest of the Idaho Tea Party?
