Popkey: Otter raises corporate cash, uses part to pay himself back for loans

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter raised $124,941 for his re-election campaign from July to December, Idaho Statesman reporter Dan Popkey reports today, and used $50,000 of it to pay himself back for loans he made to his 2010 gubernatorial campaign. Popkey reports that most of Otter's fundraising came from corporate contributors who do business with the state or lobby state officials; you can read his full post here.
