Governor unintentionally crashes reception

Jerome, Idaho -- Staffers at an Idaho library said Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and other Republican candidates were ejected from a room reserved for a wedding reception.

Patty Metcalf, librarian at the Jerome Public Library, said a campaign bus carrying Otter and other candidates, including state Rep. Maxine Bell and Roger Morley, a County Commission candidate, stopped at the library at about 5 p.m. Wednesday. That was the same time as the scheduled wedding reception for a member of Jerome's Friends of the Library organization, The (Twin Falls, Idaho) Times-News reported Monday.

"A bus load of people showed up and just invaded the library," Metcalf said. "It was chaotic because the library staff was not forewarned."
