Misquote for McKague


Apparently, Sen. Shirley McKague doesn't quite have her quotes straight.

Several sources have questioned a quote printed on one of the Meridian Republican's re-election post cards. The quote in question is attributed to Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, and appears to endorse her in her primary election battle against fellow Republican Rep. Mark Snodgrass.

"Shirley McKague has consistently represented her district in a thoughtful way. If you believe in limited government and more individual responsibility, she's the one to vote for on May 27," the quote reads.

Too bad the governor never said it.

"[Gov. Otter] did not provide that quote to Shirley McKague," Otter spokesperson Mark Warbis told BW.

"The governor is not endorsing anybody in that race."
