Eberlein faces memory concerns

Kootenai County Commissioner Marc Eberlein is aware of a possible effort to remove him from his elected position through a recall. Eberlein said Monday he also knows of allegations that he's had multiple memory lapses pertaining to county business since he took office in January. "I hear all sorts of rumors, and I try to avoid (listening to) that," Eberlein told The Press. "I've got a job to do. I try to take the high road. With the rumors that are out there, I say go for it." Eberlein said he is also aware that Coeur d'Alene attorney Peter Smith and citizen Larry Spencer both submitted public information requests about certain county meetings in which Eberlein was present. Smith didn't return phone messages seeking comment. Spencer said he's not the person who is Smith's client seeking meeting information on Eberlein, but he shares the same concern/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: So now the local Tea Party wants to chase one of its previous favorites out of office?
