BOISE -- Republican Rep. Ken Roberts was named to the Idaho State Tax Commission by Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, filling a post vacated earlier this year when Bob Geddes quit after a year on the job.
 
Roberts, a farmer from Donnelly, completes the four-person, bipartisan commission whose other members include Republican Rich Jackson and Democrats David Langhorst and Tom Katsilometes.
 
Roberts will leave his post as majority caucus chairman in the Idaho Legislature to fill the position starting July 16.
 
It's been a tumultuous and tragic year for Roberts, a member of the House Revenue and Taxation Committee.
 
His wife drowned in the Payette River in 2011.
 
And House Majority Leader Mike Moyle directed thousands to a campaign attack group in an unsuccessful bid to bring about Roberts' defeat in May's primary.
