The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee's February 28 vote to retract the former Arizona sheriff's invitation to speak at the Lincoln Day Dinner has been tossed by the party's executive board.

Mack will be the featured guest speaker, as originally scheduled, at the March 24 Lincoln Day Dinner at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, according to a press release sent out by party chair, Tina Jacobson. 

Mack was slated to headline the event, a fundraiser for the Kootenai County Republican Party, but his appearance was canceled following a vote during the February 28 meeting of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee.

It was later alleged, based on a private investigation, that the deciding vote for disinviting Mack was a forged proxy ballot. The Kootenai County Republican Party has referred the alleged forgery to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department for further investigation.

The Executive Board of the Kootenai County Republican Party met on March 8 and the majority voted to once again invite Mack to be the speaker for Lincoln Day. Mack, who is scheduled to speak at Spokane’s Lincoln Day event a day before Kootenai County’s celebration, has accepted and will headline the event.

    Capital "C" Constitutionalists, as a label chosen by people who identify themselves as such. And, I believe, a political party in and of itself.

    And I clearly did NOT label anyone a fascist. The point is, call it what you will, there is a reach at the ultimate right where I don't believe we should go. Same said for the left, but the Republicans appear to be struggling with their balance at this time, and on a certain trajectory that is clearly ever more rightward.

    Junstinian and Curiouser; before you label people "fascists" maybe you should know what the definition of fascism is. It is, quite simply, the blending of government and corporations - - also not as "corporatism". We are pretty much there right now. The trend started long ago, and has been advanced by both republicans and democrats, but has increased exponentially with the current democratic president.

    I find it interesting , curiouser, that you talk about "constitutionalists" becoming republicans as if they are mutually exclusive. Shouldn't members of ALL political parties adhere to the constitution? I'm pretty sure elected officials take an oath to uphold it no matter which party they belong to! And to equate "constitutionalists" with fascism simply demonstrates that you really do not understand what either term means. Our constitution doesn't allow the blending of govenment and business, so a fascist and a 'constitutionalist' would , by definition, be exact opposites.

    I think possibly the uber right wing of the Republican party has developed the tactics and thought processes of the liberal left that has dominated the national political stage for the past 45 years.

    I would contend that at the farthest ideological extreme to either side, the political spectrum offers something very akin to fascism.

    Why is it Republicans only worry about "RINOs" when they consider someone to be too moderate/liberal? How does a Constitutionalist become a Republican without question or challenge, yet someone who has been affiliiated with the party for years is called a "RINO" when the party leadership becomes more conservative?

    I would contend that at the farthest ideological extreme to the right, the political spectrum offers something very akin to fascism. I am NOT saying that the Republicans are there, but I do believe that is the logical extension of where they are headed, and they already exhibit some common features.

    Regardless, why would a political party have a FUND-RAISER and invite a speaker that will alleniate HALF of its own membership? At the very least we would say this is a dumb move.

    Deviant, simply deviant! This will Shirley shock the good citizens of Mayberry, won’t it? My word, who could have possibly thought that the Republican central committee of Idaho has among its God fearing representative’s charlatans and criminal hearts? What has happened to God, Guns and Ronald Reagan?

    You know honestly, with this much hoopla over Mack, he must be worth seeing. Anyone know where I can get two tickets? What day is it Saturday?

    The Kootenai County Republican party is a circus. I wonder which ring Mack will speak from?

    Forgery, indecision, lies and deceit. The Kootenai County Republican Party is sounding more like the Democrat party on a increasingly regular basis. But that's what happens when you allow RINO's into your ranks. I'm so proud.

    Forged documents? Hmmmmm.... Very odd behavior. Sounds like somebody is worried, worried enough to fake a proxy.

    Mr. Miller, Neither?

    When did Larry Spencer ever sound like (or share an opinion with) Kellie Palm????

    Its like asking "you sound like Bernie Madoff or Oprah Winfrey, which one are you?"

    As a committee of the Central Committee, the Executive Board does not have the authority to either invalidate the vote or contradict the Central Committee vote on Mack. Looks like a coup in the Republican Party. Viva La Constitution Party Revolution.
