English Announces Outside Tax Office

Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey writes about Dan English, the former Kootenai County clerk who's filed as a Democrat to run for the seat now held by Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol. Popkey says English has “an impressive resume for a challenger,” though he's running in a district where no Democrat has even run for the Legislature since 2002, and then there was just one candidate, who lost. The last one elected was in 1994.  Republican businessman Ed Morse of Hayden also is running; if Hart, a tax protester who's currently appealing more than $53,000 in back state income taxes and facing a possible home foreclosure over back federal income taxes, files for re-election, he'd face Morse in the GOP primary/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: How's that for a photo op?
