Sali says he’ll move office if re-elected

1st District Rep. Bill Sali now says he’ll move his main district office if he’s re-elected, after the House Committee on Administration said he’s violating House rules by maintaining his office outside the 1st Congressional District. Kyle Anderson, press director for the committee, said, “The requirement is that you be in the district, or in a federal office building that serves the district.”

Sali and Democratic challenger Walt Minnick have sparred over the issue, with Sali insisting in several debates that his office location complies with House rules. In a televised debate this week, he offered to send Minnick a copy of his lease. It showed a signature of approval from the House administrative counsel. However, Anderson said it apparently hadn’t been reviewed for location. “The requirement is that it be in the district,” he said. “If he’s re-elected, Mr. Sali would be required to move the district office.” You can read my full story here at
