Ward criticizes KCRCCPAC as ‘deceptive’

Betsy Russell, of Eye on Boise, picks up on the controversy involving the secretive Kootenai County Republican Concerned Citizens PAC that shares the same acronym as the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee:

The group has the same acronym as Kootenai County Republican Central Committee PAC, leading some to question the group's motives. A separate PAC called the Reagan Republican Victory Fund is also listed incorrectly as a party affiliate on the Secretary of State's website. Jeff Ward with the Reagan Republican Victory Fund, called the affiliation a mistake. Further, Ward criticized the Kootenai County Republican Concerned Citizens PAC. "The naming of that PAC is definitely deceptive," said Ward. "And no one from the public knows who makes the decisions for that group, and nobody will talk about it." Full post here.
