Eye On Boise

More than 300 pack Little fundraiser

Lt. Gov. Brad Little, who spoke out on statewide TV last week about how campaign fundraising during the legislative session is frowned upon and “generally” just doesn’t happen, drew well over 300 people today to his campaign fundraiser, a lunch at the Rose Room that was sponsored by an array of lobbyists with business pending before the Legislature. Little told AP reporter John Miller this week that he was “guilty as charged” of doing just what he’d said wasn’t done, and that he just hadn’t thought about it. But he went ahead with the lunch. Campaign spokesman Jason Lehosit wouldn’t allow Eye on Boise to go in or take a photo, saying it was a “private event,” but it was clear from the doorway that the room was filled to capacity, with many standing. Lehosit said attendance was “well over 300.”
