GOP Mulls $2500 Brannon Donation

Seems the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee is mulling a $2500 donation to challenger Jim Brannon in his never-ending attempt to overthrow his 5-vote loss to incumbent Mike Kennedy in the 2009 City Council elections. This, according to the Coeur d’Alene Press. At this point, the R’s are split on the propriety of the move, with some wondering if it’d set a bad precendence. The Press reports that the R’s are waiting for an opinion from counsel Jason Risch re: whether they should do so. The money was raised at the central committee’s Lincoln Day fund-raiser in February.

Question: Do you think it’s proper for the GOP Central Committee to contribute $2500 to the legal fund of a nonpartisan, City Council race?
