Some Idaho Republicans Want to Remove One of Their Own

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Some Republican leaders in Boise have drafted a resolution calling for Rep. Mark Patterson’s resignation and may meet on the matter next Tuesday. Officials in District 15, which Patterson represents, say they’re still mulling plans to discuss Patterson’s future.

Dan Luker, District 15′s secretary, said the situation remains “fluid” and that no meeting agenda has been finalized. But other District 15 leaders including Sen. Fred Martin are pushing to meet to resolve uncertainty over Patterson’s political future one month before the 2014 Legislature.

Martin hopes Patterson resigns voluntarily. Patterson has been the focus of attention since his concealed weapons permit was revoked in October by Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney for not disclosing his 1974 guilty plea in a Florida rape case on his application. Patterson couldn’t be reached Tuesday.
