The Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, a lobbying group that represents Idaho’s biggest businesses, has developed a special website attacking Democratic candidate for governor Keith Allred with criticisms that Allred contends are false, the Associated Press reports. The site, www.allredink.com, says that if the Idaho Legislature had listened to Allred when it set its fiscal year 2010 budget, the state would have been left with an $82 million deficit. Allred calls that “flat wrong” because he criticized only Idaho’s austere budget for fiscal year 2011 starting July 1, not the 2010 spending plan ending June 30, and he demanded the website be corrected or taken down/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
