Blast From Past — Sims’ Attack Ad

Here's proof that state Rep. Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d'Alene, has had it out for Mayor Sandi Bloem's administration for some time. Sims, a signer of the petition to launch a recall against Bloem and Councilmen Deanna Goodlander, Woody McEvers and Mike Kennedy, circulated this attack ad against three council members, including Ron Edinger, just prior to the November 2007 municipal elections. She and Tom Macy later became embroiled with the city of Coeur d'Alene for more than a year over improperly filed campaign finance reports.

Question: And you think this recall effort is only about McEuen Field?
