Legislative auditors say they have found a discrepancy in the travel reimbursements of an Idaho senator accused of having an extramarital affair with a fellow lawmaker.
Auditors reviewed the past three years of travel vouchers for Rep. Christy Perry, of Nampa, and Sen. Jim Guthrie, of McCammon. House Speaker Scott Bedke and Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill requested the audit following accusations that the two were involved in an affair.
According to the report released Friday, Guthrie was reimbursed $121 for the final night of a four-day trip but auditors were unable to verify it was for official state business. Auditors did not find any discrepancies in Perry's reimbursements.
Guthrie and Perry, both Republicans, did not return requests for comment.
Both lawmakers are seeking re-election.
