Like it or not, there’s a good chance politics found their way into your living room this week.

That’s because residents across Blaine County have received robocalls campaigning against a levy reallocation proposed by the School District, which hits the ballot Tuesday.

Idaho Freedom Action, the advocacy arm of the conservative Idaho Freedom Foundation, began calling voters on Monday, according to IFA spokesman Dustin Hurst. The group, which has offices in Boise and Idaho Falls, made another round of calls Wednesday, and has one more planned before polls open March 13. It also sent out a mailer campaigning against the levy to county residents, criticizing what Hurst referred to as “outrageous” benefits paid to district employees.
