Rep. Brent Crane, member of the House ethics committee, said Rep. Priscilla Giddings told a “bald-faced lie” about the committee chair working with the House speaker to bring forward ethics complaints.

The Idaho House Ethics Committee recommended this week that a sitting state lawmaker be censured and removed from her seat on the House Commerce and Human Resources Committee.

The ethics hearing was called after Rep. Priscilla Giddings (R-White Bird) posted a weblink that identified a teenage legislative intern who accused another lawmaker of rape.

Idaho Matters gets the lowdown on this latest saga in the division among state GOP members from reporter Heath Druzin.

When I was a University of Utah freshman, I marched up the hill to KUER to hand deliver a $20 check. The receptionist was so excited a teen listened (and donated!) to public radio that she told me to call the news director for an internship. I did and I've been working in media ever since.
