The old adage that power corrupts is false. What corrupts is being 800 miles away from your little hometown constituents all winter. If you want to meet one of Idaho's rural lawmakers, Leku is a good place to start. On any given night, legislators throw a few back and maybe smoke a stogie with staffers from the Governor's Office or Boise's old-school lobbyists. And when the Legislature leaves town, not to worry. The party just gets started an hour earlier.
