Campaign expense: Pig, sheep, rabbits

Sen. Joyce Broadsword, R-Sagle, reported some unusual campaign expenditures during this year’s campaign – a pig, a sheep, and a pen of rabbits. “I kept the pig,” the North Idaho senator said. “I paid my campaign back for the meat at market price.” The rest of the animals – purchased at auction at the Benewah County Fair – Broadsword donated back to the 4-H kids who raised them. “It’s important for these kids to continue in the 4-H program,” she said. “Having people who are willing to support the program and buy the animals makes it work. We get this PAC money without asking for it – this is one way I can put it back into the community.” You can read more here in my column in today’s S-R Handle Extra.
