State Removes Labrador Campaign Link on State Website
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A link on Idaho's official state website that led to a campaign donation page for Republican Rep. Raul Labrador has been replaced with a link to his congressional website.
State officials tell The Spokesman-Review in a story on Thursday that the link was a mistake. The newspaper reports that the link was changed less than an hour after a reporter's inquiry to Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's office. Bill Farnsworth is the manager of the Access Idaho contract for the state Department of Administration.
He says the congressional delegation doesn't send in links. Instead, contractors search for websites and then create links. The link for the donation website had been active for more than two years. Labrador's office declined to comment.
