BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Republican Gov. Brad Little has filled a vacancy in the Idaho House of Representatives following a former lawmaker’s expulsion.
Little on Tuesday appointed Tim Remington of Coeur d’Alene to fill the seat left vacant when Republican John Green was expelled from the House two weeks ago.
The House voted 65-0 to expel Green a day after a Texas jury convicted him of conspiring to defraud the U.S. Government.
Remington is a pastor of The Altar Church in Coeur d’Alene. In March 2016, Remington was shot six times in the parking lot of the church by a man who later pleaded guilty to felony aggravated battery.
“Pastor Remington’s experience will bring a valuable perspective to the Idaho Legislature,” Little said.
