Popkey: Purchasing official's departure prompts questions over laptop deal

Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey reports this morning that state Purchasing Manager Mark Little resigned nine days after voters rejected the state's proposed $180 million-plus school laptop contract, prompting Statehouse speculation that he'd left in disgust over the process. State Department of Administration Director Teresa Luna told Popkey that Little left to take a job closer to his family and grandkids and defended the laptop contract process; Little declined to comment.
