Eye On Boise

Why did GOP ask state to pay its legal costs? Semanko won’t say

Idaho Republican Party Chairman Norm Semanko has declined repeated requests from Eye on Boise this week for the reasons why the party chose to engage its attorney for the primary election lawsuit on a contingent-fee basis, and request that his costs be paid by the state of Idaho. Jonathan Parker, the party's executive director, said, “It's my understanding that it's standard operating procedure for court cases like this.” He said Semanko had nothing to say beyond that.
