Sen. Crapo gets stitches after injury at home


Next time, Sen. Mike Crapo might want to hire some movers to schlep his stuff.

The Idaho Republican, 62, is on the mend after injuring his face while trying to move furniture.

Crapo’s office tells ITK the lawmaker fell at home in Idaho Falls over the Thanksgiving holiday while attempting to move some household items.

He received stitches under his right eye. Spokeswoman Kyra Maples says her boss is “healing well.”
