Local D’s Blast Clerk’s Filing Change

Following is a letter submitted by Chairwoman Paula K. Neils of the Kootenai County Democrats to County Clerk Jim Brannon, criticizing a unilateral change in procedure for candidate filing:

As Chair of the Kootenai County Democrats and a write-in candidate for #7 Precinct Committeeman, I am writing to protest the handling of a recent, unannounced change in procedure for candidate filing by the Elections Department in Kootenai County.  Promulgation of that new procedure has sullied the election process in Kootenai County.  Several candidates for precinct committeemen, both Democrats and Republicans, have or may have been harmed by a recent change of procedure in the Elections Department.   I have sent an inquiry to the Elections Section of the Idaho Secretary of State and consulted a local attorney regarding this matter. Full letter here.

Question: Sounds like a legitimate beef to me. Thoughts?
