Idaho politics: Bill Sali surfaces, will stump for Phil Hart

A bit far afield, but noteworthy.

Former U.S. Rep. Bill Sali will appear Wednesday night at a Coeur d'Alene fund-raiser for embattled state Rep. Phil Hart, R-Hayden, and House candidate Ron Mendive, R-Coeur d'Alene.

According to an ad on the Coeur d'Alene Press website, the suggested minimum contribution is $25 per person.

Hart, a four-term lawmaker, has been embroiled in a protracted fight over his state and federal income taxes. Hart questions the constitutionality of the income tax. In April, the Idaho Supreme Court ordered Hart to pay the state $53,000 in taxes, interest and penalties.
