No Ethics Action On Phil Hart Today

Idaho's House Ethics Committee met behind closed doors for an hour and a half today, but reached no decisions and took no action. Rep. Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, the committee chairman, said much of the time was spent going over materials the committee had requested from the Idaho Attorney General's office in regard to a complaint filed by Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, against Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, charging that Hart has violated his oath of office. There was also brief discussion of two citizen complaints that have been submitted to the committee, one from North Idaho political activist and Hart supporter Larry Spencer against Anderson, and one from Hayden businessman and former Hart write-in election challenger Howard Griffiths against Hart/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
