Heather Scott is Correct
Idaho is in the middle of a constitutional crisis regarding an attempt by establishment legislators to all but end ballot initiatives in Idaho. In this episode we catch up with up to the minute action and we make a surprising declaration regarding Heather Scott. It seems that Heather Scott is concerned that limiting the ballot initiative may undercut the constitutional rights of Idaho's citizens... Heather Scott is correct and we appreciate it when people live their values even if they have to stand up to their own party.

Tune in and learn about our creepy week here in Idaho.
