Financial woes surround Canyon County prosecutor resignation

The news that Canyon County Prosecutor John Bujak was resigning on Friday was quickly followed by the revelation that Bujak owes the county hundreds of thousands of dollars, money he collected under a contract to have the county handle prosecutions for the city of Nampa, but didn't turn over to the county. Here's a link to the Idaho Press-Tribune's coverage today of the story, and here's a link to the Idaho Statesman story, which notes that Bujak has had financial troubles since he was elected prosecutor two years ago; his Nampa home went into foreclosure in 2009, and Idaho court records list a variety of civil claims against him. Canyon County commissioners accepted Bujak's resignation on Friday; deputy prosecutor Tim Fleming will fill in until a new prosecutor is named.
