Magic Valley Judicial Candidate to Appeal Disputed Campaign Contributions
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The campaign spokesman for Idaho Supreme Court candidate Robyn Brody says the campaign will appeal the secretary of state's findings that they may have broken the state's sunshine laws.
James Ruchti, a Pocatello attorney, said Wednesday that the campaign treasurer will set the disputed $17,000 aside and not spend the money during the appeals process. Ruchti said the campaign will go along with any decision made by the secretary of state or Idaho attorney general.
Fellow high court candidate Clive Strong's campaign raised questions to the secretary of state's office about the four farm-related contributions shortly after the reports were filed on Tuesday. Brody outraised her three opponents almost by almost $100,000.
