Question (from an interview of Spencer in Sunday's Coeur d'Alene Press: You say your life if “very public.” How so?Larry Spencer: I face scrutiny for most things I do. For example, last year I took my kids our for a boat ride on a friend's boat. He is also a political figure, and within half an hour of my walking to his boat at The Resort Marina, a post had been put up on a political gossip blog site by a prominent Democrat who wanted to know if this man with the boat and I were friends. A couple years ago, I had moved before an election and didn't vote. That missed vote of mine was run as a story on the front page of the Sunday Idaho edition of the Spokesman-Review, above the fold and in a print size that could be read from about ten feet away. Even the governor doesn't face that level of pressure. Complete Coeur d'Alene Press interview here.
Question: Would you like to see Larry Spencer run for the Kootenai County commission?
