An attempt to toss out subordination of perjury charges against former Bonner County Clerk Ann Duston-Sater was rejected by a judge. The charges come from the recall attempt against Steve Youngdahl, from the Lake-Pend Orielle School District over his advocacy of allowing staff members to arm themselves on school grounds. The recall appeared to have enough signatures, but due to a procedural error, it was tossed out.
. Duston-Sater is accused of allowing a recall organizer to swear oath that he had seen all of the signatures being gathered when he hadn't. Dutson-Sater claimed that she thought he can swear because he saw a majority collected.
