CdA To Pick Up Kennedy Legal Tab

Item: Cd'A picks up lawyer tab: City Council approves funding $69,660 for Kennedy attorney fees/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The council said paying the fees best served the interest of the public, since similar suits could deter candidates from seeking office. It also put the matter behind them, since the TORT claim, if denied, could warrant future legal action on behalf of Kennedy.

Question: Did the City Council do the right thing in agreeding to underwrite $69,660 accrued by Mike Kennedy in defending himself against failed candidate Jim Brannon's election suit?
