Kempthorne Hasn’t Turned Over Guv Records

Item: Kempthorne holds on to his records: Two years after he left office, the ex-governor still hasn't sent his files to Idaho's archives, as state law requires/Idaho Statesman

More Info: Two years ago, the Idaho Attorney General's office told Dirk Kempthorne to give his gubernatorial records to the Idaho State Historical Society - like every governor before him. Kempthorne never complied. Unbeknownst to the Historical Society, the dozens of boxes of documents from Kempthorne's 7 years in office were locked away in the Department of Administration - access to the public given only with Kempthorne's approval.

Question: Is Dirk Kempthorne trying to hide something?
