Eye On Boise

Sali’s two biggest donors not fond of one another

Here’s an odd note: GOP congressional candidate Bill Sali’s biggest contributions on his latest campaign finance report were from two PACs: The Association of Trial Lawyers of America PAC (Sali is a lawyer, as is Democratic opponent Larry Grant), and the Washington, D.C.-based Freedom Project, both of which gave $5,000 in the latest period and $10,000 to date for the election cycle. But the Freedom Project, which is headed by Congressman John Boehner and dedicated to electing “free enterprise” Republicans to Congress, has this to say on its website: “Today, the Democrat Party and its allies are planning an aggressive strategy to take back Congress and put it in the hands of the Washington union bosses, trial lawyers, and campus radicals. We can’t let this happen.”
