- Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa filed a lawsuit Monday seeking to get a nonprofit to turn over its donor list.
- Education Voters of Idaho reportedly gave $200,000 to help with an education overhaul plan being led by Tom Luna, Idaho's public schools chief.
- The suit is based on laws dictating that political committees must disclose any donors who give more than $50.

'The voters made it clear, when they passed the Sunshine initiative, that public disclosure is an essential element of Idaho elections,' Ysursa said. 'The citizens want to know where the money comes from and how it's spent. My job is to enforce that law.' ..."
