In an op-ed piece in the Coeur d’Alene Press, Linda Fillios (wife of former county commission candidate Chris Fillios) writes today: “I am deeply disturbed by the slanderous politics in the District 2 Kootenai County Republican Primary race. Rick Currie, the incumbent, Jai Nelson, a candidate for office and my husband Chris Fillios ran for this seat. Each received more than 30 percent of the Primary vote during the campaign. During the Primary, a member of Jai Nelson’s campaign team called certain people in the county and specifically started rumors of a sex scandal involving my husband, Chris. You have asked Republicans to back the elected candidates in this November election. I strongly support our Republican candidates, who were elected, but I cannot allow slander to become a truth and I cannot support Jai Nelson.” More here.
