McHugh Investigates Recall Complaint

The Kootenai County Prosecutor’s Office said Monday it will investigate the complaint filed last week by recall opponents, Stop The Recall. Kootenai County Prosecutor Barry McHugh said the office will look into the complaint largely based on the volume of allegations in it. “I’ll likely ask someone to do some investigative work,” he said. “There are a number of assertions in it.” That’s not to say the allegations have merit, or charges will be forthcoming, he said. Stop The Recall, the group that is opposing the recall effort led by RecallCdA, turned the complaint into the city last week. The city forwarded the complaint Monday to the county for further evaluation. The complaint states that recall supporters aiming to unseat four city incumbents have used incorrect information while seeking signatures, which would be a felony offense according to Idaho Code/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: How do you think this investigation (which could conclude today) will play out?
