Here’s video of Phil Hart being interviewed by the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department back in 1996 about the theft of timber from Idaho state school endowment land. In the video, obtained under the Idaho Public Records Law, Hart, now a three-term Idaho state representative, tells the sheriff’s department his reasoning for why he thought it was legal to cut down and take 8,000 board feet of timber from the state land to use in building his log home in Athol, an argument that subsequently was rejected three times in court.
