LeFavour Hides in Statehouse Closet
(BOISE, ID) – Former state Sen. Nicole LeFavour was asked to leave the Capitol following yet another protest Tuesday. LeFavour hid for five hours inside a closet in the Senate lounge behind the Senate chamber. Once discovered, she complied with a request from Senate Pro-Tem Brent Hill of Rexburg to leave the premises. LeFavour wanted to make a point about Idaho’s LGBT community, which she believes is wrongfully targeted in matters of housing, employment, and public services. State Republicans have denied LeFavour’s repeated requests for a hearing on the issue.
