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.

Helen Chenoweth-Hage at a memorial service Monday. "I say now to the almighty God -- and I'm not quite sure why you called her -- but she's there now: Stand back and give her rein," U.S. Sen. Larry E. Craig (R-Idaho) said in a eulogy before hundreds gathered in a suburban Boise chapel. Chenoweth-Hage died Oct.

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.

The silence is deafening. Robert K. Dornan just got bounced out of his job by a little more than 900 votes and suddenly the shrill is gone. The congressman, bested by Democrat Loretta Sanchez, was bitter and bombastic to the end. He threw one last idiomatic crumb, a post-election swipe at O.C. Republican Party official William Dougherty, who dared to jump ship in that final, losing vote: "You're a disgrace to your baptism! You're a poor excuse for a Marine! You're a pathetic, old, senile man!

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.

Although loathing of the federal government is a hallmark of conservative militias around the country, the groups are willing to deal with a few members of Congress. Militia members have campaigned for congressional candidates, showed up at town hall meetings, testified at hearings and flooded congressional offices with faxes on their pet issues. Most members of Congress dismiss them as a fringe element, but some lawmakers have treated the movement like an important political force.

Wayne Hage, who came to epitomize Nevada's Sagebrush Rebellion as he battled the federal government over public lands and private property rights for decades, has died. He was 69. Hage, who had been ill from a recurrence of cancer, died Monday at his Pine Creek Ranch near Tonopah in central Nevada, his family said. He had battled the government since the U.S. Forest Service started scaling back the number of cattle allowed to graze on national forestland in the early 1980s.

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.
