If Congressman Raul Labrador's re-election campaign lost a quarter of a million bucks, the Idaho Republican would be down to his last $472. For Congressman Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, misplacing $250,000 would leave him $183,509 in the hole.Even U.S. Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho - one of the wealthiest people in Congress - would have only $17,707 left in his campaign war chest if somebody walked away with $250,000.U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho? He's rolling in cash.So much in fact that when a young campaign staffer mishandled $250,000, Crapo didn't notice for two years. Once he did, Crapo waited another three years before alerting the Federal Election Commission -- and you. Last week, Crapo's campaign acknowledged that a twentysomething at the helm of his 2010 re-election organization took $250,000, invested the money with a friend and lost it/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Should we be a little more upset about this than we are?
