Poll: Hart Shoulda Been Booted

  • Week Long Poll: Overwhelmingly, Hucks Nation believes that the Idaho Legislature should have booted state Rep. Phil Hart from its ranks for his conduct involving income tax payments, or lack thereof, and state timber theft. 250 of 301(83.1%) respondents to a weeklong poll voted that the House Ethics Committee erred in dismissing complaints against Hart -- and that he should have been kicked out of the Legislature. Only 28 of 301 (9.3%) said Hart'd paid a sufficient penalty by giving up 2 key committee posts. Only 23 of 301 (7.6%) said that charges should never have been brought against Hart. (BTW, I know that Cindy reported the vote after the first weekend.)
  • Today's Poll: Are you concerned that President Obama's $3.73 trillion budget calls for a $1.65 trillion deficit this year and another $1.1 trillion deficit next year?
