Keough: Appalled by K-County E-mail Scandal

I can only speak for myself not the entire Legislature. I personally am appalled by the recent news and agree with today’s editorial calling for the resignation of the prosecutor. My legislative district does not encompass any of Kootenai County. There are four legislative districts that do: Dist. 2, 3, 4 & 5 with 3 legislators in each for a total of 12 individual legislators who have Kootenai County within their legislative district. Perhaps your question is better directed to them. More importantly, the Legislature has established law that allows for county voters - in this case Kootenai County - to recall their elected officials and to vote for other elected officials. The Kootenai County Prosecutor has not been opposed in two, I believe, cycles. I’d suggest it is time for someone to do so or the voters could also consider a recall. However, I don’t live there nor does my legislative district go into that county. So, I am personally sickened by the latest and suggest that the voters in Kootenai County have the tools in their hands to demand changes one way or another.
