Kelso Calls Susan Smith To Witness Stand

Susan Smith, a county elections department worker, was on the witness stand when Judge Charles Hosack adjourned court proceedings into Jim Brannon’s lawsuit against Councilman Mike Kennedy and the 2009 Coeur d’Alene City Council elections this afternoon. Smith, the third of fiftysome people on Kelso’s witness list, took the stand around 3:30 p.m. Until then, Kelso had questioned County Clerk Dan English for the entire day. Major John Chamness of the Salvation Army/Kroc Center told Huckleberries Online this afternoon that his wife, Lani, was dismissed from the witness list late this morning. Lani Chamness was dismissed after this blog posted her husband’s account of a private investigator who tried to find out Friday night for whom she had voted. Huckleberries is trying to obtain a witness list to post here.

Question: Anyone willing to guess how long it’s going to take Kelso to get to the end of his witness list?
