The Realtors PAC is well funded, and spreads money around widely, even to some Democrats, so its finances are worth looking at. First off, I notice that this PAC donated $750 to Clayton Cramer, but none to his opponent Sen. Tim Corder. I guess the Republican powers that be really don't like Sen Corder for some reason.

More interesting is this. The RPAC gave $2,256 to Veritias Advisors on May 22, 2008to support Gail Hartnett in Dist 18 over former legislator Julie Ellsworth. Idaho Republican party Chair J. Kirk Sullivan is the head of Veritas. So this time the party chair has his fingers in an effort to defeat a former Republican incumbent.
I think Veritas should disclose its efforts to defeat legislative candidates. Who hired it, which seats were targeted, and how much was spent? I also think Sullivan should explain his role in these efforts.
Update: Oops, I did it again. I consulted an out of date legislative guide which listed Julie Ellsworth as a sitting legislator. Adam pointed out my error in the comments. Thanks to Adam, and I'll just say I was giddy about Obama clinching the nomination when I made the mistake. Various changes made to reflect the screw up.
