Nonini Caught In Campaign Fax Snafu

Item: Campaign funding fax bloopers abound: Legislature candidates both sent disclosure reports from colleges/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: An investigation of Nonini's own campaign financial disclosures revealed that his own campaign financial disclosure was faxed last week from a University of Idaho machine located at the university's research center in Post Falls. Nonini's campaign manager/treasurer is Jerry Baltzell, a University of Idaho employee and the business manager at the research center. "I certainly don't approve of that," Nonini said when made aware of the source of his own campaign fax. "I'll take the responsibility myself."

Question: What do you make of Nonini getting caught in the same faxing blunder that he'd contacted NIC & the Press to issue a complaint re: Dave Larsen's campaign?
