Hypocrisy loves company, apparently. Crapo's hardly the only one in this category.

You are correct, sir. The link to the Think Progress page will take you to 110 similar instances of hypocrisy. Crapo is the only Idahoan on the list (that I saw).

BTW, the deleted comment was by me, and was just a misfire.
