Question: When Will Douglas Deal w/Baughman?

Issue: Baughman claims privacy for e-mails/Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Kootenai County’s chief deputy prosecutor is claiming a “privacy interest” in the vast majority of e-mails he exchanged with female colleagues on his county computer, including some sexually explicit e-mails that were widely circulated among county employees. A log the county released Wednesday revealed that 65 percent of e-mails Rick Baughman sent and received in October had nothing to do with work, even as his office was preparing for the triple-murder trial of Joseph Edward Duncan.

MamaJD: The daily Baughman Files reminder: Another day and another dollar for Rick Baughman. Has he been demoted or is he still technically the Chief Deputy Prosecutor? What type of pay is he getting while he is on “paid leave”? Is his paid leave a portion of his salary that he would usually make if he showed up to work? Historically, there was a time when the Chief Deputy made more than the elected Prosecutor. Is this still the case?

DFO: 65% of the e-mails weren’t work related? Shazam.

Question: Now that this has played out for a bit, do you have any new thoughts about the ongoing controversy?
