Thayn's Son Charged


After we asked the Idaho Statesman for comment on a story about Rep. Steven Thayn's response to an article they ran last week -- they discovered the other key piece of the story we've got for tomorrow's print edition.

Turns out Thayn's eldest son was arrested in April on domestic violence charges. Check out our version of the story in print and online tomorrow.

Thayn has drawn heavy criticism over recommendations from his legislative task force on families, which include re-examining Idaho's no-fault divorce law, questioning early childhood education and encouraging women to stay at home with their children.
