Radio Iowa: An interesting ITR decision

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

Iowans for Tax Relief has scheduled a news conference in Des Moines,
Iowa, tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. The timing is interesting, as many
legislators will be in Cedar Rapids, attending the funeral of former
state Senator Mary Lundby of Marion. The funeral is scheduled to
start at 1 p.m. It appears the leader of Iowans for Tax Relief has no
plans to pay his respects to Lundby at her funeral, as according to
the news release Iowans for Tax Relief president Ed Failor, Junior,
will be in Des Moines leading the news conference. Lundby was a
Republican and in April of 2006 she took over as Republican leader of
the Iowa Senate in what many considered a surprise move. Republicans
in the senate met privately and ousted their leader, Stewart Iverson
(a longtime friend of Iowans for Tax Relief), installing Lundby as
Co-Majority Leader of the Iowa Senate.
