Spencer Hangs Up On SR Reporter

From Erica Curless' story on Kootenai County commissioner Seat 3 race: “This is the first time Spencer has run for elected office and instead is known for his behind-the-scenes efforts against anything he sees as a misuse of taxpayer dollars or an assault on private property rights. Yet he hasn’t dropped his evasive persona, refusing to tell his age, which public records show is 39, or the name of his company, DH Consulting. Spencer hung up on a reporter who asked about a 2008 property foreclosure and three run-ins with the law in the early 1990s that resulted in traffic-related charges for racing, obstructing an officer and careless driving.” More here.

Question: Should a Kootenai County commissioner candidate refuse to answer a reporter's questions?
