Huntley offers to suspend tax deal lawsuit if state launches special investigation

Bob Huntley, attorney for Rep. Shirley Ringo, D-Moscow, in her lawsuit over secret tax deals at the state Tax Commission, sent a letter to Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden today with three new affidavits attached from longtime senior tax auditors, all making allegations just as shocking as those in the original affidavit from retired senior auditor Stan Howland about special tax deals being offered to those with political influence, and Huntley proposed that if the state would convene a special investigation panel to look into the charges and follow certain requirements, he and Ringo would suspend their lawsuit that's now pending in 4th District Court.
