New ethics complaint filed against Hart by North Idaho Rep. Eric Anderson

A GOP lawmaker from North Idaho has filed a new ethics complaint against Rep. Phil Hart, saying Hart's 1996 theft of state school endowment-owned timber, claims of legislative immunity and tax protesting show he's violated his oath of office.

Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, calls Hart's actions a "stain" on the House and says he should be removed from office.  "I'm a little frustrated with leadership right now because they haven't taken action," said Anderson, a third-term representative who just won a fourth term in the House. "The speaker should have done something a long time ago." You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
