Look where it got them

Here's something interesting: Just two of the North Idaho Panhandle's state legislators had perfect scores on the ratings of voting records this year by the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, the state's most influential business lobby. IACI is used to lawmakers agreeing with it. Overall, the group said lawmakers voted with it 88 percent of the time in the 2004 session.

But the two 100 percent scorers from up north - Sen. Kent Bailey, R-Hayden, and Rep. John Campbell, R-Sandpoint - are both out of the Legislature. Four-term Rep. Campbell retired, and first-term Sen. Bailey was beaten in the primary by Michael Jorgenson.
