Mike: Glad SR’s Spending $$$ to Find Truth

Mike: I am so thankful the Spokesman Review is spending the money to get to the bottom of the email controversy. The average citizen could never afford the legal fee’s. Only because of the SR the public’s interest and civil rights are being looked after. I sure don’t see the ACLU or any other group looking out for the publics interest do you?

DFO: We’re currently debating whether to sue for all of Rick Baughman’s e-mails. But we’re not rushing into it because we’d probably end up where we are now with the other fight … waiting until the Idaho Supreme Court rules on the e-mails between Bill Douglas and Marina Kalani this spring. So why throw more money at it? BTW, if I was a betting man, I’d guess that county officials aren’t providing those e-mails to us because they’re more afraid of a lawsuit from Baughman than the cost of fighting us. It’s all about dollars and sense — rather than exposing questionable behavior of a problem employee.
