Crapo, Risch Talking To Women, Too

Idaho Sens. Jim Risch and Mike Crapo issued a statement Thursday saying they’re interviewing both “men and women” for a U.S. District Judge opening, and that the process is “ongoing,” but not saying whether or not they’ve actually interviewed any women, or anything else about their secret selection process. The Spokesman-Review reported on Tuesday that while Risch and Crapo wouldn’t comment, multiple sources say four finalists have been interviewed for the position - all men, including two state judges and two lawyers with GOP ties - while at least five prominent female Idaho attorneys, including the current U.S. Attorney for Idaho and a current U.S. magistrate judge - said they’d applied but not been interviewed/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: I wonder why the about face?
