Ethics committee on Hart to convene

A rare House Ethics Committee convenes on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. Boise time to review the conduct of Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol. The conference-call meeting is the first since the bipartisan panel was appointed last week; it will take place in the House State Affairs committee room, East Wing Room 40 in the lower level of the state Capitol, and you can listen to a live audio stream here.

Here are links to my articles in the past month about Hart's tax woes:
     * IRS goes after Idaho lawmaker
     * Idaho lawmaker claims extra time to appeal taxes
     * Hart used session to hold off tax man 4 times, starting in first term in office
     * House to convene ethics panel on Hart
     * Hart defends tax fight, welcomes ethics probe
     * Lawmaker also delinquent on property taxes, paid late every year since 2002
