What's going on with the GOP?

| September 10, 2023 1:00 AM

Recent shenanigans involving the Bonner County commissioners beg the question:

Why is Scott Herndon, chair of the Republican Central Committee, asking for Republican Commissioner Bradshaw's resignation?

What do you think of this? Idaho law says that when a county commissioner seat is vacant, the county central committee of the same political party … submits a list of three nominations to the governor, who has 15 days to choose from the list. If the governor fails, the choice goes back to the county central committee of the political party submitting the nominations.

In this case, I think the governor might get out his 10-foot pole and stay out of this one.

In recent actions, Herndon, the Bonner County Central Committee, and the state Republican Central Committee (of which Herndon is also a member) have taken control of elections out of the hands of Republican voters and into their own.

Does anyone have a better explanation?

I'll let you decide.
