Idaho Statesman reporter Cynthia Sewell had an extensive report in Sunday's paper about Gov. Butch Otter's dollar-a-year director of the state Department of Adminstration, Mike Gwartney - also Otter's best friend - and how his actions have aroused displeasure from state legislators and from an Idaho CEO whose company is suing the state, alleging wrongdoing in a state contract award. You can read Sewell's full report here. Today, Democratic candidate for governor Keith Allred sent out a press release criticizing Otter's leadership, and calling Gwartney "a crony who’s done nothing but damage Idaho state government."
