Idaho Education Association endorses Rep. Mike Simpson over Nicole LeFavour

Editors' Picks

Politics makes strange bedfellows, but perhaps the oddest pillow talk came when the Idaho Education Association gave a ringing endorsement to Republican Rep. Mike Simpson's re-election bid. The most gobsmacked was Simpson's Democratic opponent, Nicole LeFavour, who was quick to add that Simpson had regularly received poor grades from the National Education Association, the parent agency of the IEA. In a bizarre feeding-the-mouth-that-bit-them, the IEA is supporting a man whose own political action committee pumped cashed into the 2010 political campaign of Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna, whose education reforms the IEA opposes.
