North Idaho Lawmaker After Receiving Parking Ticket: 'Where's the Love?'

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2013 at 11:05 AM

A north Idaho lawmaker, who got a fair amount of attention after calling 911 to complain that he had been called "a moron," is back in the news this morning and no, it's not good.

Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Steve Adams called 911 in March, saying he wanted to make a citizen's arrest after Coeur d'Alene City Attorney Mike Gridley called him a "moron" following a debate over funding for a wastewater sewage treatment plan.

And now it turns out that Adams was met with a parking ticket on his car while he was attending a City Council meeting on, you guessed it, sewage. Adams appealed the ticket and lost.

Meanwhile the ticket was posted online on the Spokesman Review's Huckleberries column.

In his appeal, Adams claimed that he "believed there was an exemption for elected officials" for parking citations.

"I'll pay it," Adams told the Coeur d'Alene Press. "Oh well."

Adams said when his appeal was denied, "I'm like, 'Where's the love?'"
