Racial Slur Broadcast In South Central Idaho

An update to this story (3:28 pm): Please read Sisyphus' excellent rundown on this "situation."

Not surprisingly, Zeb Bell's big mouth has gotten him into hot water once again:
Just to clarify, the racist remark was broadcast by a Rupert station, the actual radio show of said Bell comes directly out of his house in Murtaugh. And yes, this is how the man talks, no, not a chance this was misheard.

One thing that continues to bother me about this story is the continuous headline at the Times News: "Comment irk Democrats." Zeb Bell's comments aren't about Democrat or Republican. Everybody with a pulse should be irked about his comments.

Follow this link to my full write-up on the racism of Mr. Bell or simply continue scrolling down.

Tara, there are people in Rupert who have examples of the hate that Zeb has spewed against the Latino community in Burley. I am hoping to be in contact with some people there and get that information out.
We tried to keep the party slant out of the story-unfortunately the reporter went to the state party for comments instead of seeing the big picture.
