Anderson: Spencer Was On Crusade

(Larry) Spencer's complaint, which questioned everything from how much Anderson paid for his home to whether he had a conflict of interest in voting on contractor registration legislation, led to hours of investigation that turned up nothing. “I didn't anticipate having a pretty thorough background check done on my life,” Anderson said, and joked, “but maybe that'll help me apply for future high-security government jobs.” Said the fourth-term lawmaker, “I've always tried to do the right thing. I've always tried to be honest in my actions.” Of Spencer (who is pictured), he said, “Larry's on some sort of crusade. … He seems to have a cause, and apparently I was it”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Do you agree with the ethics decision to drop Larry Spencer's complaint against Rep. Eric Anderson?
