Sali and his Congressional/campaign staff

By John Foster - Friday, October 17, 2008 at 05:29 AM

Earlier this week, Bill Sali and Walt Minnick took part in a candidate debate hosted by the Boise City Club. At one point, Walt highlighted elements of media reports on Sali’s Congressional office being outside the District and his use of his Congressional staff to run his campaign.

At right about the same time, the Huffington Post reported that the Congressman has three taxpayer-funded staffers working on his campaign.

An online Sali campaign roster, stamped “completely confidential,” lists Wayne Hoffman, Tina Jacobson and Jonathan Parker, respectively, as campaign media manager, North Idaho campaign director and campaign strategist.

“It amounts to mere minutes a day, a few days a week. It’s hard to take a leave of absence for five minutes a day,” [spokesman Wayne Hoffman] explained. (It should be noted that this one conversation itself lasted more than five minutes.)”

The web page of the “confidential” list has been pulled. But you can see a screenshot here
