His comments seem to often link it with the word "corruption" or some other perjorative word; though his recent quotes have not seemed to link those two words, anymore.
Maybe Larry Grant's more correct than many of us gave him credit for.
Not that the Idaho State Senate GOP Leadership is "corrupt" - as I have witnessed nothing that reflects an out-and-out ignoring of Idaho's laws...pending the Attorney General's report on Mr. McGee's actions, as an individual.
However, the press reports on this event have NOW appeared throughout the US, today. Amercia sees Idaho once again as a laughing-stock, back-mountain wild west show.
Could the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Idaho be spot-on accurate about the "culture" of a GOP Senate Leadership team that would allow an arrogance of power, a disregard for common decency and a mentality that meets in secret as a caucus - to possibly cover tracks and to plan how to obfuscate issues?
I exclude Chuck Winder from this discussion - as he has proven his integrity and merits no inclusion here.
But I am done with Senator Davis and Senator Hill.
Their lack of leadership in helping craft an honest and open path, through the many travails of former-Senator McGee is shameful. We needed leaders and we got slight-of-hand artists, with a false sense of honor for their colleagues.
Yes, they took the lead yesterday on the sexual harassment issue...but they HAD TO. They are being sued, for goodness sake...
The key to strength of character is to stand up when a person DOES NOT HAVE TO - When it is less than obvious to the casual observer; when it is less than advantageous for a person's political benefit - or a party's benefit.
The GOP State Senate Leadership should feel the full force of failure in dealing with Mr. McGee's actions.
They let him down by not calling him to account, from June until the day of his resignation.
And they let the people of Idaho down.
Now it is time for Mr. Davis and Mr. Hill to step down... from leadership.
They may not have wrecked a truck like their former colleague did, but the case can be made, by people as different as Larry Grant and Dennis Mansfield, that they participated in the wrecking of this state's reputation.
