Idaho: Constitution Party Candidate’s Membership in Militia Draws Media Attention

Posted at http://thirdpartydaily.blogspot.com/

From the Bonner’s Ferry Herald:

Every able-bodied Idaho male 18 through 45-years old, already belongs to the militia, according to Jeff Stankiewicz. That is outlined in the Idaho Constitution, said Stankiewicz, major of the 21st Battalion of North Idaho’s Lightfoot Militia.

A member of the Constitution party, Stankiewicz is challenging incumbent assessor Dave Ryals in the Nov. 2 general election. Ryals is running on the Republican ticket.

It is not, however, Stankiewicz’s political campaign that is drawing the most attention. It is his membership in the militia — especially after a similar group in Indiana were arrested last month for allegedly plotting violence against the government.

    The majority of militias are law-abiding and do follow the constitution.
    But that one in Indiana was NOT a true militia, but a psychotic and armed Christian group.
