Mainstream media continues to raise more questions about the expense account reporting of Idaho Historical Society Director Steve Guerber.
KBCI-TV Channel 2 reporter Thanh Tan has jumped on the story like a pit bull and seems to come up with more revelations each day. Monday she showed that Guerber had claimed travel to Sun Valley both as an Eagle City Councilor and as Historical Director.
The amounts of the expenses are not as troubling as the details of his travel, according to the news report. The expense voucher for the state shows travel from Lewiston to Sun Valley, but the Eagle City voucher shows travel from Eagle to Sun Valley on the same date.
Guerber and his expense account came under scrutiny after a routine audit indicated possible irregularities on random travel vouchers. About $700 has already been returned to the state, but a much more detailed audit is underway.
Too soon to pass judgement, but the daily media coverage. doesn’t bode well for the long time public servant.
