McHugh: He Thought He Was Truthful

No charges will be filed against a petitioner who was surreptitiously recorded making inaccurate statements while attempting to collect a signature on a petition to put a referendum to recall four Coeur d’Alene elected officials before voters. The recording, made April 29 on Tubbs Hill, was published on CDAPress.com and can be heard by following this link: Recording captures recall petitioner’s pitch Kootenai County Prosecutor Barry McHugh sent a letter to Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department Det. Jerry Northrup last week advising there is insufficient evidence that the petitioner, Rodney Bitterman, knew his statements regarding the petition to recall Mayor Sandi Bloem and City Council members Deanna Goodlander, Mike Kennedy and Woody McEvers were false. McHugh wrote in the letter that Bitterman understands he made false statements, but says he didn't know they were false/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
