    but this rumor has been around for a long time in Idaho, and the MSM probably won't touch it unless a warm body comes forward to talk about it. Idaho fundamentalists are all about cognitive dissonance.

    Humiliate the Club for Growth. Contribute to Larry Grant now!

    •  I guess the hypocrisy will continue in the den (0+ / 0-)

      of garbage within the Fundies and the Culture of Corruption party...not that I thought it would end anytime soon, just that a few brakes would be put on at least with on side or the other.

    •  Agreed, this is almost certain to have no effect (0+ / 0-)

      There have been longstanding suppositions about many of the Idaho congressmen. Here's a good example, chenoweth (spelling may be incorrect).

      1. It is well known that she was more or less appointed to congress because she was having an affair with the previous resident of that seat. This did not hurt her among the fundies.
      1. She blasted Clinton for his affair, and demanded that he resign, but then a few days later it came out that she had an affair of her own, with a married man. She said that the difference between her and Clinton is that god forgave her (sheesh....), and did not suffer for it at the polls.
      1. Despite her sordid past, she regularly played the "personal responsiblity" card. In a somewhat ironic twist, she was killed recently in a car crash because she was not wearing her seatbelt.

      She was the rule, not the exception. The mayor of Boise (once again, fairly hazy memory here...) was also busted for stalking his secretary, for example. He had also gone to gay stripclubs in Florida, and expensed it on the city.  When asked about this, he responded that they had good food, he didn't know it was a gay bar. Apparently the food was good enough to distract from the atmosphere, he went back twice, and expensed it on the city both times.

      The list goes on and on. Anyone who is currently a republican has ignored torture, treason, lies, theft, etc... what is one more pedophile or other assorted scumbag.
