Checking For Campaign Violations

Item: Post-election paperwork: Coeur d'Alene officials looking into possible campaign violations/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Now that the election is wrapped up, the city clerk and city attorneys are combing through a series of complaints that range from simple campaign filing errors to potential criminal activity. “We've had some complaints that may be in violation of Idaho code, which could be criminal,” said Mike Gridley, city attorney. “We have also had some that may be in violation of reporting requirements, which may only require compliance.” Gridley said City Clerk Renata McLeod will look at the complaints and try to help those who are out of compliance meet reporting requirements, and then forward those that she cannot to his office. Gridley will then review those cases and forward them to a prosecutor if there is a need to do so.

Question: Am I the only one who sees this exercise as a waste of time and money?
