GOP Rep. Phil Hart Loses Re-election Bid

idaho.gov

KTVB – A tax-protesting northern Idaho Republican representative has lost in his four-way primary. Rep. Phil Hart was defeated by challenger Ed Morse in Kootenai County’s District 2 race. Morse faces Democrat Dan English in November. Hart has been fighting the state and federal government over hundreds of thousands in unpaid income taxes. He’s written a book that challenges the legality of income taxes and has been a regular sponsor of bills seeking to allow Idaho residents to make  payments in gold and silver. A four-term lawmaker, Hart has also acknowledged taking state-owned timber he didn’t pay for in the mid-1990s to build his home in Athol. Morse, a Hayden, Idaho real-estate appraiser, raised $16,500 to Hart’s roughly $6,000 total ahead of the primary election.
