The ”Republican” Attorney General of Idaho Lawrence Wasden lost his primary battle last night. He was defeated by former Idaho US Congressman Raúl Labrador (R).
Wasden pretty much flew under the radar. That is until he refused to file a SCOTUS amicus brief in the Texas v. Pennsylvania lawsuit over the handling of the 2020 general election, in support of Donald Trump.
According to Idaho Press, “One was a brief backed by 126 members of Congress including Idaho GOP Reps. Mike Simpson and Russ Fulcher. The other was one backed by Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin and a group of GOP state lawmakers from Idaho, Alaska and Arizona.”
Even Idaho’s Governor Brad Little announced he would be filing an amicus brief in the case. On the same day that Little made his announcement of filing in support, AG Wasden declared he would not file an amicus brief on behalf of the state.
This move by the attorney general did not sit well with many Republicans in the state.
During COVID lockdowns in April of 2020, Sara Brady was arrested for taking her children to the park for a play date in Meridian Idaho. Brady was charged with trespassing and booked into Ada County Jail. Brady has pled not guilty to the trespassing charges saying, I’m “not going to plead guilty for being a mom”.
With all the COVID shutdowns, jury trials in the state of Idaho were not taking place. Currently, it has been two years since Brady’s arrest and no trial date has been set, but her legal fees are building up.
Many citizens have asked AG Wasden why he hasn’t dropped the charges against Brady. All he has ever responded with is the public doesn’t know everything and he isn’t at liberty to discuss the case publicly when confronted about the case.
Wasden is known for “talking down” to his constituents who ask him valid questions in person at town hall events. He displayed no interest in connecting with voters before the election, it seems his own actions are what did him in.
