2009 domestic incident
In April 2014, the Idaho Press-Tribune reported that Chaney had been convicted of disturbing the peace and malicious destruction of property following a domestic dispute in 2009. Court documents stated that Chaney "pushed and shoved" his then-wife, then injured her finger with her cell phone when she tried to call 911. Chaney was also said to have threatened suicide if his wife attempted to leave. Chaney addressed the revelations, telling the Press-Tribune that he had since turned to God and remarried. He later told radio station KBOI that the incident stemmed from drinking while waiting for his wife, who he referred to in the interview as his "girlfriend," to return home; he said an argument ensued over "giving back [his] debit card," and that he had "pretty much acted like a big jerk."
Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
