A candidate for the Spokane City Council admitted to welfare fraud six years ago. Larry J. Bacon, a mechanic running for Council Position 1, pleaded guilty to second-degree theft after admitting he lied about his income to the state Department of Health and Social Services, according to court records.

Despite having one of the largest third-party debts of any freshman Republican in the House, Idaho's conservative Rep. Helen Chenoweth is trailing her colleagues in fund raising this year. A new analysis of campaign finance reports for the first half of 1995 shows that the average amount of campaign cash raised from January through June by the 50 House GOP freshmen was $142,000 - $20,000 more than Chenoweth managed to generate.
Government watchdogs want state Senate Republicans to return all the campaign money illegally raised during the 1995 legislative session. In a letter to the state Public Disclosure Commission last week, the Senate Republican Campaign Committee offered to settle the case by repaying $35,310 to contributors, or roughly half the money raised.
The political treasurer for Republican Congressman Helen Chenoweth acknowledged on Tuesday that a $40,000 loan federal financial reports said Chenoweth personally made to the campaign actually came from West One Bank.
