    BOISE, Idaho — Federal Election Commission regulators are scrutinizing whether Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Sali followed campaign disclosure laws before the May 27 primary that require congressional candidates to disclose large contributions within 48 hours after they receive them. His rival, Democrat Walt Minnick, received a similar request for information earlier this year.

    Democratic candidate Walt Minnick leads Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Sali by a seven-to-five margin in one of the most telling polls of Idaho's 1st Congressional District race: a tally of the two rivals' personal firearms. Minnick owns seven guns: three pistols, a .22-caliber rifle, two Remington shotguns and a pellet gun he's used to teach his children to shoot. Sali, who in 2006 helped fight off an Army National Guard effort to restrict shooting in a Snake River raptor preserve, owns two shotguns and three rifles. Now Minnick and Sali are dueling over who would best stick up for 2nd...
  • Minnick in for fight as Palin excites Idaho GOP (Sali in ID District 1)

    09/15/2008 12:15:04 PM PDT · by GOP_Raider · 5 replies · 288+ views
    Nampa businessman Scott Faris didn't vote for John McCain in the primary and he wasn't excited about his choices in November. But when McCain picked Idaho native Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee, Faris became excited. "I'm certainly on board now," Faris said. "I think this brings more Republicans and conservatives out." No Idaho Republican candidate has benefited from Palin's bump more than 1st Congressional District Rep. Bill Sali. Sali's Democratic challenger, Walt Minnick, was raising more money than Sali. And GOP leaders like Gov. Butch Otter were still unhappy about Sali's role in ousting state party Chairman Kirk...

    Item: Minnick condemns Sali for voting against bill crucial to rural Idaho More Info: The House on Thursday rejected a bill that would have continued for four years payments to rural counties hurt by federal cutbacks in logging. A majority of lawmakers voted for the bill, but under special House rules, the bill was defeated. Supporters brought up the measure under rules that did not allow any amendments. The 218-193 vote in favor — largely along party lines — was well short of the two-thirds needed. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., denounced Republicans who voted against the bill,...

    NAMPA — U.S. Rep. Bill Sali expressed doubt Friday about the value of multiculturalism and warned that non-Christian principles could jeopardize the “protective hand (of God) that’s been over this country.” Sali made his remarks at a meeting of the Idaho Press-Tribune’s editorial board. The statements came not long after the Republican 1st District congressman said he did not like the use of Hindu prayer to open a session of the U.S. Senate last month. He also said the prayer and a Muslim member of Congress were “not what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers.” A spokesman for the Idaho...

    First is, it is stunning to me that this body will consume over 36 hours of floor debate on a nonbinding resolution. This should be on the consent calendar. Irrespective of one’s position on the war in Iraq, all taxpayers are right to be incensed at such waste in this Congress. This legislation will not have the effect of law, will neither inspire nor impede military action in Iraq or elsewhere, will not encourage our troops on the ground nor foster victory over America’s enemies that practice terror. It will have one effect: poking the President of the United States...
  • (ID Congressman Bill) Sali Proposes Repeal of Gravity to Protest Minimum Wage Hike

    COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Angered by the passage of a bill to increase the federal minimum wage, Idaho Congressman Bill Sali offered a symbolic proposal to abolish the law of gravity. Getting rid of the pesky force that attracts objects to one another would lower obesity rates, the freshman Republican argues. Sali says he was trying to make a point that laws to dictate wages and reduce gravity would both defy - quote- "natural laws." The House voted 315-116 to raise the federal minimum wage to $7.25 an hour. Sali responded with his "Obesity Reduction and Health Promotion Act."...

    BOISE, Idaho Representative-elect Bill Sali has been elected president of the incoming freshman G-O-P class in the U-S House. Spokesman Wayne Hoffman says the 13 Republican lawmakers who will start their first two-year terms in January chose Sali because of his background in the Idaho Legislature. Sali defeated Democrat Larry Grant to fill the open seat in Idaho's First Congressional District.

    Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) doesn’t hold back when it comes to his feelings about the race for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District seat, now held by Republican Rep. Butch Otter, who is leaving Congress to run for governor. Bill Sali, a GOP state representative, recently won the nomination for Otter’s seat. Ever since, Simpson has barely been able to contain his dislike for Sali. “There’s a serious question about whether he can win the race,” said Simpson, who referred to controversial former Rep. Helen Chenoweth (R), when he added, “He makes Helen look like a dream.” Sali’s Democratic opponent is Larry...

I think the most important thing that I could say to start off with tonight is that if every single pundit were predicting that Bill Sali were going to lose; if there were not a soul who believed that he had a chance at victory;...

    BOISE - Bill Sali has a strong base of supporters because of his long-standing support for smaller government, less taxes, and anti-abortion legislation. He also has a distinct and-- some say-- combative style that has often alienated him from his colleagues. For that reason, Idaho Democrats rejoiced in front of the statehouse steps Wednesday. "Republicans have made a lot of mistakes in recent years, but nominating (Sali) for the candidate for the first congressional district, I think, was one of their biggest," said Richard Stallings, chair of the Idaho Democratic Party, as he prepared to introduce the winners of his...

    This was a big race, folks. Sali defeated pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, tax-hiking RINO Sheila Sorensen. This was a huge victory for the Club for Growth. The five conservatives in the race did not split the vote enough for the RINO to win.

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

    Conservative Republican state Rep. Bill Sali needs your vote in an online poll on the 1st Congressional District race in Idaho: http://www.cdapress.com Sali is endorsed by Concerned Women for America, Paul Weyrich, the Club for Growth, National Right to Work PAC, GunOwners of America, Idaho Chooses Life, etc. He has a wide lead in funds raised, but his toughest opponent -- liberal former Sen. Sheila Sorensen -- has substantial personal wealth. As a Senate committee chair, she singlehandedly blocked consideration of a state marriage amendment and is pro-abortion.
