They basically say ‘he did it’

The Senate Ethics Committee is now debating its findings and conclusions in its investigation of Sen. Jack Noble of Kuna. Its draft conclusions, which haven’t yet been adopted, are very serious:

"1. The enactment of SB 1085 would have provided a potential personal monetary benefit to Sen. Noble, even though he and his wife were not personally eligible to be a contract distributor of liquor under existing Idaho State Liquor Dispensary rules, and he should have disclosed that potential personal monetary benefit to the Senate State Affairs Committee.
2. Sen. Noble gave false or deceptive information in response to Senate State Affairs Committee member questions and misled the Senate State Affairs Committee as to the origin of SB 1085.
3. While testifying under oath, Sen. Noble willfully and contrary to his oath provided false information to the Senate Committee on Ethics."

Oddly, Noble isn’t in the room – he’s sitting just around the corner, at his desk in the Senate chambers.
