In what is believed to be a first, an incumbent Republican House candidate has run a campaign ad that attempts to link her Democratic opponent to President Clinton's legal problems. Helen Chenoweth, who represents Idaho's 1st District, is facing Democrat Dan Williams, whom she defeated by less than 6,500 votes two years ago. In one of the commercials, Chenoweth, a two-term lawmaker from Boise, accuses Clinton of damaging the presidency.

A man in khaki overalls with a beard halfway down his stomach stands next to his wife, dressed in an ankle-length skirt and modest head scarf. Together, they look like they just stepped out of the Bible, and not merely a cabin in the mountains of northern Idaho. The man wants to know what's going to be done about the United Nations takeover of America's national parks.

In response to your Sept. 19 article that explored the question of whether "the media has damaged the public dialogue by pushing too far into the private lives of elected officials," of course they have. With a few exceptions, the print and broadcast media have done everything possible to wring the last ounce of scandal out of the Starr investigation of the Clinton affair. It's a disgrace that once-reputable media organizations have lowered themselves to tabloid-type reporting. But, having done it for one, let's do it for all. Let's have the details on the affairs of Reps.

President Bill Clinton today issued a call for Elvis Presley and James Dean to "quit torturing their millions of fans, come out of seclusion, get plastic surgery and physical therapy and resume their public lives." In so doing, the president appeared to be lifting a chapter from the political handbook of one of his fiercest opponents. Rep.

For the second time in a week, a right-wing critic of President Clinton has admitted to an affair. The confession came from Rep. Helen Chenoweth (R-Idaho), who was forced to go public by the Idaho Statesman after she committed what proved to be a tactical error: demanding Clinton's resignation and declaring in a campaign commercial, "I believe that personal conduct and integrity does matter." Chenoweth, 60, told the newspaper that she had an affair 14 years ago.

The League of Conservation Voters said Wednesday that it would launch an effort to defeat 12 members of Congress, including two Californians, in districts where their anti-green voting records can tip elections. League President Deb Callahan told a news conference that the group plans to spend $1.5 million to defeat the "dirty dozen" in what she called "the largest electoral campaign mounted by an environmental organization in the history of the modern environmental movement."

On Tuesday, I did something I thought would never happen in my life: vote for a Republican. Instead of wasting a meaningless vote for virtually unopposed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Barbara Boxer, I crossed party lines (experiencing the guilt of betrayal, mixed with the thrill of illicit activity), and voted for Matt Fong--obviously the superior Republican candidate and an equitable opponent. But it was a brief dance with the devil. Boxer gets my real vote in the fall.
