City Clerk Answers Ward Allegations

Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers has sent HucksOnline a detailed response to allegations made by Jeff Ward of the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans. Among the issues she addresses is the easily misunderstood campaign finance report submitted by the group to cover candidates backed by the Reagan Republicans in Coeur d'Alene. In closing, Weathers writes: "Finally, you have wrongly accused Mr. Kennedy of actions that were not his and accused me 'as a highly-paid employee of the City Council' and of 'acting under his direction' and that I am using my office 'to benefit preferred candidates and organizations and maliciously harassing opposing candidate and organizations' is also not true and, I consider it to be a slander upon my reputation. I believe, at the very least, you owe Mr. Kennedy and myself an apology." You can read Weathers' entire letter here.
