Regan stands by PAC story

Brent Regan, a former Coeur d'Alene School Board trustee and political activist, is standing behind his story that he bankrolled an attack flier circulated by Responsible CDA PAC during the Coeur d'Alene City Council election last month. In a Coeur d'Alene Press story today, Regan said:

Regan said Tuesday he donated simply because he was asked to do so. "They came to me with a proposal," he said Tuesday. He declined to discuss the proposal, or make any further comments. He did, however, call back later in the day. "I'm tired of the apparent corruption and conflicts of interest," Regan said. "People like Eden Irgens can be on the (Balance North Idaho) board and they are vetting candidates, and she turns around and gets these contracts for work that really isn’t even good." Irgens, reached by cellphone Tuesday while traveling, declined to respond to Regan's personal attack. Full story here.
