Idaho governor target of latest attack site

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho’s third-party gubernatorial candidate is following the lead of the state’s largest business lobbyist group and has launched an attack website criticizing incumbent Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter’s political stances.

Former Canyon County prosecutor and Libertarian candidate John Bujak says he put up the site after seeing the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry use the same tactic to attack Democratic candidate A.J. Balukoff as a liberal.

Bujak’s site criticizes Otter as the liberal candidate running in the Nov. 4 general election. The site includes a video where Otter’s face morphs into Balukoff’s and back again with no audio.

Bujak’s site claims Otter wants to expand Idaho’s Medicaid eligibility.

However, Otter has repeatedly said he will not support expansion unless the federal assistance program for low-income adults changes.
