Hart Splits District 1 Republicans, Too

Item: GOP Schism Plays Out on Internet in Northern Idaho/John Miller, Associated Press

More Info: This “smells of a witch hunt,” wrote Larry Spencer, a Kootenai County Republican who supports Hart, according to text of the discussion group provided by Spencer. Sen. Shawn Keough, a Sandpoint GOP member, wrote to support Anderson’s bid “to investigate Rep. Hart’s theft of logs from state lands” and his “use of legislative immunity during the legislative session to avoid legal filings and hearings.” The online Yahoo meeting may last until Monday, as 31 precinct members in Idaho’s 1st Legislative District fight over whether to pen a letter supporting Hart or Anderson in the ethics proceedings.

Question: Will District 1 support Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest River, of Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol?
