Coming Soon: Johnson Post


Marc Johnson, president of Gallatin Public Affairs and long-time Democratic backroom guy cum lobbyist is planning a new blog launch, sources tell citydesk.

It will probably be called The Johnson Post and will focus on history, politics and public affairs. Unlike the similarly named Huffington Post, if will probably not have much Michael Jackson coverage, but who knows what Johnson is really into?

Johnson, a history wonk, is delivering an address entitled, Packing the Court — Franklin Roosevelt’s Biggest Political Blunder at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14 at the College of Idaho Langroise Center in Caldwell.

It's part of a larger symposium on the Supreme Court called Storm Center: The History of the Supreme Court for the Idaho Humanities Council’s summer teacher institute for Idaho educators.
