In a column for the Inlander, former Sandpoint councilman John T Reuter explains why he thinks voters should reject the re-election bid of state Rep. Heather Scott, R-Blanchard:
Scott campaigned proudly holding a Confederate flag, a symbol that has no connection to North Idaho other than failed neo-Nazis. This past January, in her official capacity, she traveled to eastern Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to support Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his son Ammon when they and others took over a federal building, in an armed occupation aimed at seizing our public lands. She has repeatedly voted against funding education. After a fellow state representative was caught illegally poaching, her legislative proposals have exclusively focused on making it more difficult to catch poachers. Finally, she's encouraged her supporters to actively intimidate volunteers for her political opponent, leading to a complaint to the Idaho Attorney General. More here.
