The goings-on of red state Republican officials aren’t usually national news, but this story from Boise is a fitting postscript to a week that started with Second Amendment activists bringing guns to a presidential speech and muttering about “forcefully resisting” the government.
Challis McAffee, a Ron Paul-supporting Republican Party leader from a suburb of Idaho’s capital city, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for pointing a gun at a homeowner. Why was he confronting the homeowner? Well, he was hired “to document the condition of homes where mortgages are past due or in foreclosure.”
