Elections bring out the worst in people, and Sandpoint is no exception. Residents in the Sandpoint area have been receiving “robocalls” attacking Shelby Rognstad, a candidate for mayor in the upcoming elections. Both Rognstad and challenger Mose Dunkel have denied any involvement in the attack ads. Rognstad said the he was shocked and concerned when told of the phone calls Tuesday morning. He and Dunkel were together campaigning when advised of the attack ad. “I found it surprisingly entertaining,” Rognstad said. “It’s hard to believe that anyone would think that would be effective.” Dunkel agreed, calling the attack ad “childish.” Running a clean campaign is something he is passionate about, and he said he would never downgrade another person’s personality/Desiree Hood, Bonner County Bee.

Question: Wouldn't you like to know who is the moron(s) behind these robo-calls?
