Item: School Wi-Fi contract defended: State schools chief: No political influence involved/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Idaho public schools superintendent Tom Luna said Thursday that the now controversial contract for Wi-Fi service in the state's high schools was developed according to the specific directives of the Idaho Legislature. Luna defended the process his department used in structuring the contract and awarding it to Education Networks of America, a Nashville firm. He claims there was no political influence in the selection of ENA. Critics have said the company was chosen because it made financial contributions to election campaigns for Luna and several state lawmakers
Question: Why didn't you believe me when I told you that there was no political influence involved in the 15-year contract awarded by Superintendent Luna to a campaign contributor?
