Idaho Blogs — 1/12/09

Now that Bill Sali is no longer a congressman, he’s going to need a new job. He wasn’t exactly prospering as a lawyer before going to DC. After all, he had to work three jobs; lawyer, legislator, and musician. I’d guess that an unpopular 1-term congressman isn’t going to be a prime candidate for a lobbiest or consultant job. So, I wonder if Gov Otter will toss ol’ Bill a bone and give him a state job. I know of one that’s coming open in a few weeks at an annual salary of $89,711. The Idaho Industrial Commission, which administers Idaho’s workers compensation system, has three commissioners/IdaBlue. More here. Idaho Blog roundup below

Question: What will Bill Sali do while he waits two years for another run for Congress?
