Hunt Responds To ‘Nonini Letter’

Following is a portion of the letter that Post Falls Trustee Julie Hunt dropped off at the Coeur d'Alene office of the Spokesman-Review Wednesday re: a letter circulated in the closing days of the Post Falls School Board election, under Sen. Bob Nonini's signature:

The one that really ticks me off ... as a mom, as a woman, as a 22-year resident of Post Falls, and a voter ... is the letter sent "From the Desk of Senator Bob Nonini" dated May 17, 2013. May 17, 2013 ... are you kidding me? Four days before the election the letter was sent so that there was no chance for me to refute Senator Nonini's lies! That's cowardly, even for the worst of politicians. I received a copy of Nonini's letter the afternoon of the election after it had been circulated privately for maximum effect. Senator Bob Nonini, you sir, are a bold-faced liar! You claim in that letter that "...I have had many opportunities to meet with their opponents..." (referring to me as one of the 'opponents'). The truth is (not that you would know it if it slapped you in the face), that you and I have NEVER met. Not once! Full letter here.

Question: You thoughts on Hunt's response?
