Curtis Bowers: Secret Agent Man

Posted on Tue, Jan 15, 2008 at 4:00 AM

... Or just plain crazy.

The Idaho Press Tribune, the paper that originally printed the, um, creative essay that Rep. Bowers penned, does some followup on the story.

Rep. Bowers, who was appointed by Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter last year, wrote a colorful piece about the hom'sexual agenda, wimmin in the workplace and, of course, Communists. Tied it all together in a neat bow.

How, you wonder, did he get his information?

Dude went undercover.

"I assumed it would be a bunch of radical college students, so to fit the part, I grew a goatee, got a revolutionary T-shirt and put on some ratty jeans," he wrote.

Now, the Press-Tribune has gone back to the story, and even found someone who actually attended the meeting.

Turns out Bowers may have been more creative than we originally thought.

"A San Francisco man who said he belongs to the group Bowers refers to in his column said he attended the meeting Bowers writes about. He said Bowers’ depiction of what happened at the meeting is false," writes Mike Butts from the Press-Trib.

All of which leads us to the question: For this guy Otter skipped Pat Takasugi?
