County commissioner candidate Tim Herzog filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy on $124,239 in debts earlier this year. "When I filed for office I was concerned that would come up," Herzog said Monday. "This could really kill my chance of winning this race." The majority of his outstanding debts was one home loan for $109,199 from Sterling Financial. The rest were credit cards and other bills.

"Being a Realtor, I should have done more due diligence on that"/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
