Bouma Offers Reward For Info On 'Hoax' Mailers
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Republican State Senate candidate Gresham Bouma denies sending out religious-leaning mailers in Latah County that urged voters to become true believers or be "struck down."
Bouma's campaign is offering a $1,000 reward for information on the fliers, which were made to look as if they carried his endorsement and told voters: "You are not a true Christian and you are on the path to hell."
The Latah County prosecutor's office is also investigating the mailer, which said a vote for Bouma was not enough and urged voters to join Freeze Community Church, which Bouma's family attends.
Pastor Lloyd Knerr says his church has never prayed to "strike down" anyone.
Bouma beat nine-term Republican senator Gary Schroeder during the primary and faces Democrat Dan Schmidt in November.
