English Testifying In Brannon Case

Update: County Clerk Dan English was on the stand this afternoon when Judge Charles Hosack adjourned court for the day. The only 2 witnesses called today by Jim Brannon attorney Starr Kelso were Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers and English. Alison Boggs is working on the newspaper story re: today's proceedings. I'll post it on Hucks Online when it's available.

Alison Boggs reports back from Jim Brannon's court trial to overthrow 2009 Coeur d'Alene election that opening arguments are done -- and that Judge Charles Hosack rejected an attempt by Brannon attorney Starr Kelso to disqualify him from hearing the case. Now, Kelso is going through Idaho voter law point by point with Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers on the stand to try to show that she was the one responsible for overseeing the 2009 elections, not Kootenai County. Weathers has responded to several questions from Kelso that the city contracted with the county to handle the election. Period.
