Rep Heather Scott Responds to Unwarranted Attacks


The people of my district sent me to Boise to shake up the good old boy system. And I call it like I see it. Too much has been hidden from the citizens and they deserve to know what is going on in their government. The words I used to express a legitimate concern may have been too harsh, and I apologize for that as I never intended to offend anyone.

There are some within the Idaho legislature who believe the only way to make a problem go away is to either hide it and pretend it never happened or to stir up a distraction by finding a scapegoat. Inaccurate and false accusations by some in the House establishment are being hyped to the members and the media in an attempt to split conservative and liberty minded legislators. It is probably no coincidence that the latest “stir” from within the catacombs of “leadership” comes on the heels of the recently published freedom website helping citizens to keep better tabs on legislation and legislators called

The irony of yesterday’s news article attacking our freedom movement is that it is just another attempt to hide a shenanigan. They choose to “leak” the misinformation one month after the event on the same day that all 105 legislators were given 3 hours of ethics training.

I think many legislators realized the integrity of our body is in jeopardy based on the unethical conduct of many of its own members, a taboo topic. When old news, based on inaccurate information, becomes a headline, we encourage citizens to dig deeper to find out what the real truth is and avoid the distraction.

Citizen trust for legislators rapidly diminishes when those who make mistakes don’t admit to their wrong doing and those in charge of overseeing the body dismiss bad behavior or go a step farther and reward it. Statements made in a letter in today’s newspaper by a legislator who is already struggling with an emotional and infidelity issue of her own, were completely false and slanderous and a typical diversion tactic.

While the media tries to pit conservatives against conservatives, we will not be sidetracked in our efforts to become a louder voice in the Idaho legislature. In light of the recent federal elections, citizens and liberty minded legislators, who have the integrity to uphold their oath to the Idaho Constitution and party platforms, have a real opportunity to push a real freedom agenda in Idaho. Those who don’t will continue to manufacture distractions hoping an uneducated public will be duped.

  1. Bob needs to go sell his Liberal bologna over at the Daily Bee. We’re not buying it here. Heather won fair and square, let her do the job we sent her to do.

  2. Scott brought this on herself. She has never tried to work with others at the legislature. Her combative style and everybody’s out to get me attitude, has not endeared her to anyone and made it difficult for her to find colleagues willing to work with her. Insulting her fellow legislators is a sure way to paint yourself into a corner.

    Legislating is a collaborative process. It can’t be done alone. Scott just doesn’t have the style or temperament to be an effective legislator.

    If all she wants to do is protest, she should pick up a sign and march around the capitol.

  3. Stand strong, heather! You didn’t earn an A+ Freedom rating for nothing, and that’s bound to make enemies among the establishment system. We know you and we know that you have the highest level of integrity. The new website ‘’ is outstanding too. Great job! Don’t let up no matter what games they play. We stand with you.

  4. We stand with you. You have proven again and again BY YOUR ACTIONS that to you, principle is what matters and is the opposite of ” politics as usual”. Principled action and telling the truth is a threat to those duplicitous, unscrupulous professional-politicians feeding off of OUR labor while they say one thing publicly , legislate another privately and personally do as they please at our peril while we pay their bills.

  5. Heather, like Donald Trump, is not afraid to cut through the fluff and put a spot light on the political dirty laundry leaders like Bedke keep in their skeleton closets. That dirty laundry appears to be full of bed bugs for Ms. Perry. Stay the course, Heather, North Idaho loves you and your spot light.
