Why NIPAC didn’t back Green

From endorsement release by North Idaho Political Action Committee:

"Four years ago, we aired these concerns about John Green: 'He's expressed some bizarre views advocating the arrest of federal law enforcement officers in the county, and his agenda contains ideas that have very little to do with the duties of a county sheriff.  He seems confused about whether he's running for sheriff or Congress...Last but not least, Mr. Green served as legal counsel for Phil Hart, which calls into question how he would interpret and enforce the law as sheriff.'  Mr. Green has not adequately addressed any of these concerns, so they remain as relevant in this race as they did in 2012."
