(BOISE) – State Sen. John McGee of Caldwell is raising eyebrows again, this time for misusing taxpayer funds. The Republican lawmaker who lives only 26 miles from Boise collected nearly $6,000 in order to maintain a second residence, even though he stayed with his parents in their Boise home during the 2011 session. Officials say it’s a violation of the spirit of the reimbursements. McGee made headlines earlier this year after being arrested for stealing a car while drunk, prompting state GOP leaders to issue a vote of no confidence against him.
