Eye On Boise

Who made that claim about me? Oh, it was me…

Apparently when congressional candidate Bill Sali made that reference to people seemingly claiming he has a position on Proposition 2 when he maintains he doesn’t (an interesting boast), those claims he was referring to came from his own campaign. “No matter what anyone else claims, I have not finalized my position on Proposition 2 yet,” Sali said in news release yesterday. But in July, his campaign manager (and daughter-in-law) Jesseca Sali told the Boise Weekly in writing that Sali supports the measure, and the BW duly reported that position. Here’s the email exchange between Jesseca Sali and BW reporter Shea Andersen:

“Jesseca, Thanks for the time this morning. Just looking for Rep. Sali’s position on Proposition 2, the eminent domain or “takings” ballot initiative now on the ballot for November. My question is: Will he vote for it or not? And, yes or no, can he say why or why not? Thanks very much. Phone or e-mail response today would be great. This would be going into next Wednesday’s edition.”

“Shea, Bill will vote for Proposition 2, and I have provided you with a quote from Bill below.
Bill Sali: “As John Locke said, the preservation of property rights is the end of government. Throughout my years in public service, I have worked to help secure private property rights for all Idahoans. Government should be a good neighbor with property owners, and Proposition 2 embodies that principle.”
