Video: Eastern Idaho Prosecutor Targeted in Recall Petition

by

An eastern Idaho prosecutor is under fire after citizens turned in a recall petition, calling for his ouster, with more than 3,500 signatures.

KIDK-TV is reporting that a Jefferson County group wants longtime prosecuting attorney Robin Dunn out of office. Among other things, the group points to Goody's personal law firm that charged the county $18,000 to represent the county in a federal case.

"Over the last few years, he has misused his authority, power and his budget to the detriment of the country," said Shelly Alldred who worked with Dunn for 15 years but signed the recall petition.

The Jefferson County Clerk's Office is currently verifying the signatures to make certain that there are enough—2,824 were required—to trigger a recall election.
