GOVERNOR OTTER AND BOISE MAYOR ISSUE JOINT STATEMENT DENOUNCING RACIST ‘ROBOCALL'

(BOISE) – Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter and Boise Mayor David Bieter released this joint statement regarding today’s news reports about an Idaho-based white supremacist group initiating racist ‘robocalls’ against Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum:

“Idahoans fought too long and hard against ignorant, disgusting bigotry like this to allow it to ever gain a foothold again in this great state. No matter who spews it or who is targeted, condemnation against this kind of poisonous propaganda cannot be too swift or vigorous. We call on all Idahoans and all Americans to stand against anyone who espouses such viewpoints. This kind of bigotry will not be tolerated in Idaho."
