A reader tells us the Republican Party was given funds from the Idaho Housing and Finance Association–the agency that has its board appointed by the Guv and includes legislators, but it isn’t really a state agency.
Public records at the Idaho Secretary of State site show the “quasi-governmental” corporation donated $500 to the Republicans for the Lincoln Day party in February. We are told $500 will get those who pay, a table closer to the front of the venue. Wonder if the members appointed by the Guv approved the donation…we can’t find any indication of similar donations to the Democrats.
Seems the folks entrusted with selling GARVEE highway bonds, facilitating loans for low cost housing, and proposing to make Tamarack’s $670 million bailout legit to union pension funds has a tilt to the right.
