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.
