Prosecutor explains decision to punt

Bonner County Prosecutor Louis Marshall says he referred the case of alleged harassment of a Democratic Party field organizer by supporters of Rep. Heather Scott to the Idaho Attorney General’s office because of a possible conflict of interest for his office in looking into the matter. Marshall said today that the office contacted him about the case after receiving a complaint from the chairman of the Idaho Democratic Party, who also suggested he and the local sheriff, both Republicans, might have a conflict of interest in investigating the case/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

DFO: The decision by the Bonner County prosecutor seems reasonable to me. Thoughts?
