  • Originally posted at 5:02 p.m. Friday

Huckleberries has acquired a copy of a response sent by City Attorney Mike Gridley to Assistant Chief Deputy Attorney General Brian Kane re: state Rep. Kathy Sims' claims (which Gridley called "scurrilous") of widespread conflicts of interest among elected officials who OK'd McEuen Field changes. Quoth Gridley: "It appears that Rep. Sims has opened a new front in her on-going battle against urban renewal and Coeur d'Alene city government." Gridley then goes on to break down the allegations raised by Sims. You can read what he says about Mayor Sandi Bloem's ownership of one-third of a building a block from McEuen Field and other so-called conflicts that Sims' claims here.
