Idaho Republican chairman files lawsuit against Idaho GOP

Idaho Republicans.

(AP) — Embattled Idaho Republican Chairman Barry Peterson has filed a lawsuit against two GOP members for allegedly scheduling an illegal meeting of the state central committee while also declaring all state party offices – including Peterson’s – vacant.

Peterson filed the lawsuit against Mike Mathews and Cindy Siddoway Thursday in district court in Twin Falls. Six other Republicans filed with Peterson, including former 2nd Congressional District candidate Bryan Smith.  Peterson’s lawsuit comes just weeks after the Idaho GOP convention failed to elect any new state party officers. Peterson has maintained he is still in control, even though multiple lawyers, including from the Republican National Committee, say otherwise. In a news release, Peterson wrote that the lawsuit was necessary because Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter had yet to resolve the issue.
