House Speaker Discusses Redistricting Ruckus


House Speaker Lawerence Denney faced detractors in his Republican caucus over his handling of an fight over redistricting last week, where he and GOP Chairman Norm Semanko tried unsuccessfully to fire two of their own party’s commissioners.  Denney called a caucus this morning over the issue. Lawmakers normally sworn to secrecy about these closed-door sessions revealed Denney conceded he’d failed to communicate effectively with Dolores Crow, the GOP commissioner he sought to boot off the panel. Contacted by phone, Denney says he’s now resigned to the commission’s latest plan governing Idaho for the next decade. Denney’s and Semanko’s efforts to fire Crow and another GOP commissioner, Randy Hansen, drew the ire of Republicans including former Gov. Phil Batt, who accused them of sullying the redistricting process to grab more power.
