North Idaho Republican group's name disputed


Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, is said by colleagues to be a leading contender to become the new director of the Idaho Department of Insurance.

The Kootenai County Reagan Republicans were served with a letter from a lawyer late last week, informing them that the name of the organization is already registered and held by someone else.

According to the Bonnor County Daily Bee, the letter states that the group is  “expressly forbidden to use, promote, display, print or produce any document, media or other communication in any form that includes the name ‘Kootenai County Reagan Republicans.'”

Ron Lahr, a representative for the group, says he views this as identity theft. The papers submitted for rights to the name were filed on April 20.
