Idaho PAC under investigation

The AP has a report today on the state investigation into contributions to the “Integrity in Government PAC,” which has been ongoing since January. The PAC has been active recently running newspaper ads targeting Gov. Butch Otter and the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, featuring crudely drawn cartoons. The Idaho Falls Post Register reported in February that the PAC’s $126,000 in contributions in May 2014, including several large donations, raised questions about the source of the money; among those identified as donating large amounts were an individual who had little reported income. Donations by someone other than the reported source would violate the state’s Sunshine Law/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
