Editor's Note: The following press release landed in my inbox yesterday from the Idaho Democratic Party. May the governor stick to his guns on the topic of ethics and put some pressure on the legislative majority to support this worthy idea.
Update (1.13.12): Speaker Denney has lashed out at Democrats for using the phrase "culture of corruption" in their portrayal of ethical lapses in governance. House Minority Leader Rusche has responded to Denney's outrage at the Democrats' rhetoric. This issue is bound to get more contentious. It is, after all, only the first week of the legislative session.
