GOP ‘China Beachhead’ Fight In Offing

The Elmore County Republican Central Committee has endorsed a resolution that calls on the Legislature to "cease further foreign-based corporate development of a 'Free-Trade-Zone'" and upon Gov. Butch Otter to disclose the details of China's role in Otter's economic development plans. The resolution will be considered by the State Central Committee July 16 in Moscow. ... Otter said Thursday that "Nobody is a stronger. more consistent defender of our Idaho sovereignty than me," and that he's "happy to provide" the information. "Nothing is secret, illegal, unconstitutional or contrary to the priorities of Idaho or U.S. sovereignty," Otter said. Otter said he will continue his "Project 60" economic development push and fight "rumor and innuendo"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here. (AP file photo for illustrative purposes)

Question: Am I the only one amused that the conspiracy theorists have now turned on Butch?
