RRepubs Spending $10K On CdA, PF

Update: HucksOnline has learned that Strategery Group, which has been paid at least $9300 to date to assist in Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls council elections for 5 Reagan Republican-endorsed candidates, is owned by Reagan Republican board member Ron Lahr. We're discussing the curious connection in this thread now.

The Kootenai County Reagan Republicans have spent $3802 so far, promoting the Coeur d'Alene City Council candidacies of Dan Gookin and Steve Adams, according to the 7-day, pre-election financial disclosure statement that's due by 5 o'clock this afternoon. The Reagan Republicans have budgeted $5000 from their Victory Fund to push the candidacies of their two board members. All of the money so far has been spent with The Strategery (cq) Inc. of Post Falls. Disclosure statement here. Meanwhile, the Lake City Employee Association and the Washington State Council of County and City Employees raised $1500 apiece and donated $1000 apiece to the candidacies of George Sayler, John Bruning, and Ron Edinger. Disclosure statement here.

Question: Is there anything wrong with Reagan Republican lieutenant Ron Lahr, through his Strategery Group of Post Falls, raking in much of the advertising dollars from Reagan Republican Victory Fund-raising efforts and endorsed candidates?
