Rep. Giddings made a clear point today about how the Idaho Constitution requires reading a bill three times before being voted upon. The common practice of suspending the reading actually violates the Constitution—which we all swore to uphold.
We are proud of Rep. Giddings. She supports the Constitution!
Be prepared for the establishment and #fakenews to try to discredit Rep. Giddings. She was the people’s hero today.
Her motion/objection is entirely within the rules. The true shenanigans came from the establishment in an attempt to embarrass her for simply exercising her right as a representative.
Every word she read was symbolic of a representative who is truly here for the people. To ask for a bill to be read should be commonplace. Not reading bills should be the exception, not the rule!
