The Trial of the Christian Heather Scott (Opinion)
For the second straight day Friday on Top Story, we talked about the GOP’s attempts to silence one of its own.
Scott, a Christian and a proponent for standing up to federal land grabs would appear to clearly define GOP.
The hypocrisy is beyond belief. A woman serving in the legislature and overwhelmingly approved by her constituency is stripped of committee assignments because of a sarcastic remark. Representative Heather Scott told a colleague women got ahead in the Idaho legislature by sleeping with men in leadership. Apparently, a colleague alleged to have committed adultery with a powerful man serving in the legislature filed a complaint.
Many Idaho legislators appear to believe their public office is their private property and a source of personal profit. They insist Scott isn’t a true Republican.
The party claims to stand for small government, traditional values and God-given rights. Scott, a Christian and a proponent for standing up to federal land grabs would appear to clearly define GOP. Below are two segments from Top Story. You be the judge.
