NYC mayor big donor in Idaho vote

BOISE – A secretive campaign group that claimed to be providing Idaho parents a voice in the state’s school reform referendum fight actually was bankrolled in large part by an Idaho grocery heir and by the billionaire mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg. That news surfaced when Education Voters of Idaho, acting under a judge’s order, filed its campaign finance disclosure report on Wednesday afternoon. Bloomberg gave $200,000 to EVI, which financed TV ads across the state backing Idaho Propositions 1, 2 and 3. His donation was eclipsed only by that of Albertsons heir Joseph B. Scott, who gave $250,000.
