Souza: Press, Katie Brodie Unfair!

Alas, Mary isn't feeling good vi-vi-vibrations from that Coeur d'Alene Press article this morning re: dismissal of complaint against fibbing Recall signature gatherer Rodney Bitterman. Quoth Mary in the comment section of the article "could not have been more slanted." (You can judge for yourself here.) Mary, however, didn't use up her rhetorical bullets on the Press (which has bent over backward to be fair on this contentious issue). She singled out Gov. Butch Otter's representative Katie Brodie for special attention. Katie's sin? Standing up for Mayor Sandi Bloem last night and -- gadzooks! -- at a chamber meeting, too. Mary's bottom line? Gov. Otter shouldn't listen to Katie, his North Idaho field representative, if/when he's called on to make a replacement appointment to the Coeur d'Alene City Council (in case of a successful recall attempt). No, Mary didn't say anything about state Rep. Kathy Sims over-the-top role and support of the Recall. You can read entire statement in comments #7 of those post.
