Ward: Spencer Spreads Disinformation

Since fourteen members of the Kootenai County Central Committee sent a letter objecting to the selection of Richard Mack as the keynote speaker of the Lincoln Day Dinner, many of you have been contacted by proponents (namely a KCRCC non-member, Larry Spencer) who have spread disinformation about our letter.  Let me set a few facts straight. I composed the letter with ideas and research by a number of signers. Since it was a letter sent to the KCRCC Chair and Secretary with copies sent to signatories and various KCRCC members (whose email was on the original KCRCC Roster) there was an expectation of that the letter would be public. It was sent on Monday February 20th.  I did not forward it to anyone else.   I responded to a media email on the afternoon of Tuesday February 21st by a reporter who had seen a copy of the letter. There seems to be some confusion about the nature of our objections to Mack speaking that have been further obscured by the disinformation mentioned above/Jeff Ward, Kootenai County Reagan Republicans.
