Fired Idaho Transportation Director Pam Lowe is suing the state, after it never responded to her wrongful firing tort claim alleging sex discrimination, political cronyism and more. Her legal complaint includes explosive new allegations about political pressure, which the head of the Idaho Transportation Board immediately disputed. "I filed that tort claim in good conscience and in good faith, looking for answers and looking for resolution," Lowe told The Spokesman-Review, "and was disappointed that they chose not to respond in any way, at least yet. And I'm left with no choice but to file this lawsuit." You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
