A Cda Press article today reported that Coeur d'Alene Mines was moving to Chicago and stated:

"There was a massive effort from the (Idaho) governor's office [Gov. Otter] to keep them in Coeur d'Alene," said Steve Griffitts, president of the Coeur d'Alene-based economic development group Jobs Plus. 

The word that immediately came to mind--"Bull-pucky".

Reminds me of the time Gov. Otter was to be the speaker at the Sunshine Memorial Service. Instead of attending he sent a flunky who read a one paragraph letter from the Gov. and stated the Gov. had a meeting that he just could not get out of--sorry. Curious I checked into the Gov's calendar for that day. Turns out that the meeting, that he just could not get out of, was he and the first lady were scheduled to go to a Garden Valley (e.g. Boise suburb) Chamber of Commerce luncheon that day. Guess the salad offering was better than the pot-luck put on by the community.

Yep Bull-pucky fits.

Old man Rice must be rolling over in his grave. How can CDA Mines be in Chicago? I am still angry that they left Wallace for CDA. Shame on Wheeler for letting an outsider in .
