Idaho Sen. Jim Risch set off through the woods for his mother-in-law's house on Myrtle. But, oops, it looks like it's been burnt, ransacked, squatted in and now condemned. Risch's family house--an eyesore by any standard--has stood gutted on one of Boise's main thoroughfares for more than two years. A family spokesman said they are waiting for an insurance settlement. One nearby salon worker/political activist has his own issue: Risch is one of the most wealthy men in the Senate; why not pretty up the lot for his campaign signs?
