Guest Post: Minnick Selling Gem State for Big $$$’s

July 24th, 2008 by Halli

From Bryan Fischer, Idaho Values Alliance

Local political observer Adam Graham discovered that, as far as out-of-state money is concerned, things are worse for Walt Minnick than anybody realized. As Graham points out, when Bill Sali received significant support from the Club for Growth in 2006, the war cry of the Democrats was “Idaho is not for sale.” Apparently they’re now okay with the sale of the Gem State, as long as it’s to fat cats from New York. The non-partisan Open Secrets website reports that an astonishing 71% of Minnick’s campaign funds have come from out of state. Minnick has raised more money in New York City than in Boise. Minnick’s supporters have been suddenly and strangely silent about the danger out of state money represents to the purity of Idaho politics.

    Fischer’s comments are fascinating… completely false, but fascinating. His claim the 71% of Minnick’s “campaign funds” have come from out of state is a flat out lie. The cited report says that 71% of Minnick’s contributions from individuals of $200 or more have come from out of state (not including the last reporting period). Fischer doesn’t mention that Sali had gotten $381,000 from mostly out of state PACs, compared to only $45,500 for Walt Minnick. Why does Bryan Fischer feel like he needs to bear false witness to support Bill Sali?

    I bet Fischer wished he could get money to pay off the court judgement again him…$10.000 and change?. Yep he’s a real man of God, more like a fraud.
