Best Awkward

Dave Case and Sharon Ullman on the Ada County Board of Commissioners

Editors' Picks

Dave Case and Sharon Ullman don't like one another, but that's the least of it. Case defeated Ullman in the May 15 Republican primary, ending her most recent stint on the Ada County Commission. Case still needs to compete in November's general election against Democratic candidate Thomas Howell and independent Jon Howard, but in the meantime, Case was appointed to the commission to fill in for retired Commissioner Vern Bisterfeldt. As if that weren't awkward enough, Ullman asked on her Facebook page whether Case was a killer. "New Ada County Commissioner David Case a Cop Killer?" wrote Ullman. "On Dec. 14, 1992, David Case and four other ISP officers assassinated a Payette County Reserve Deputy inside the Payette County Courthouse. In 1997, the Idaho Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, found the five officers personally liable for the act." Case said the accusation was old news and that the shooting had been justified in a follow-up inquest. Ullman later wrote, "I occasionally try to grab people's attention."
