Trib: Jeers To AG Wannabe Troupis

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, Opinion Editor Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune gives Jeers to … to Idaho attorney general hopeful Chris Troupis. Last week, the politician formerly known as Christ Troupis claimed the support of Idaho billionaire Frank VanderSloot - who helped get Attorney General Lawrence Wasden elected in 2002 — and VanderSloot's corporate spokesman, Damond Watkins of Idaho Falls, who is also the Idaho GOP national committeeman. But neither VanderSloot nor Watkins are supporting Troupis. When the Idaho Statesman's Dan Popkey caught up with him, Troupis said he was confused. Complete column here.

Question: How can you be confused about a major endorsement?
