Mack to headline Lincoln Day Dinner
Vote rescinding former Arizona sheriff’s invite tossed due to forgery
COEUR D’ALENE – Former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack will be the featured guest speaker, as originally scheduled, at the March 24 Lincoln Day Dinner at The Coeur d’Alene Resort. Mack was slated to headline the event, a fundraiser for the Kootenai County Republican Party, but his appearance was canceled following a vote during the February 28 meeting of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee.
It was later determined that the deciding vote for disinviting Mack was a forged proxy ballot. The Kootenai County Republican Party has referred the alleged forgery to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department for further investigation.
The Executive Board of the Kootenai County Republican Party met on March 8 and the majority voted to once again invite Mack to be the speaker for Lincoln Day. Mack, who is scheduled to speak at Spokane’s Lincoln Day event a day before Kootenai County’s celebration, has accepted and will headline the event.
