Otter declines to confer with empty chair, draws laugh…

An empty chair stood next to Gov. Butch Otter as he spoke today to the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho. "I apologize for this chair up here," Otter told the crowd. "The lieutenant governor asked me if I was going to pull a Clint Eastwood, and I said, 'I was there - I don't think so." His comment drew a laugh.
