Prosecutor: No Conflict Of Interest

Item: Bonner County prosecutor: No conflict of interest: Marshall: Officials won't benefit from McEuen project/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Bonner County Prosecutor Louis Marshall said Friday conflict of interest violations for Coeur d'Alene city officials regarding the McEuen Field project do not exist. ... The Bonner County Prosecutors reviewed a complaint from Coeur d'Alene Rep. Kathy Sims that said ethics in government laws were breached as Coeur d'Alene city officials worked on the conceptual plan for the downtown park because some officials have business and property ties near the park.

Question: Should state Rep. Kathy Sims apologize to Mayor Sandi Bloem and the Coeur d'Alene City Council for her frivolous, public accusation that they had a conflict of interest in dealing with McEuen Field?
