Eye on Boise: Dump site operator gave to Idaho politicians

American Ecology Corp., operator of the hazardous waste dump 70 miles southeast of Boise that’s about to get 6,700 tons of uranium- and lead-contaminated sand from Kuwait, has been a generous donor to Idaho politicians’ campaigns. Most recently, the firm’s PAC, AEC PAC, gave $2,300 to Idaho Republican Jim Risch’s U.S. Senate campaign and $500 to the re-election campaign of state House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star. And that’s just the most recent ones./Betsy Z. Russell, SR Eye on Boise – More here.
