House Republican Caucus Communications Director

After her defeat from the House of Representatives, Agidius was hired by the House Republican Caucus as its communications director for the 2015 Legislative Session. House Minority Leader John Rusche of Lewiston asked Speaker Scott Bedke for her removal from the position, alleging that Agidius was abusing her role as communications director by 'harassing' and 'spying' on her former opponent Representative Paulette Jordan. Agidius took a photograph of Jordan swiveling in her chair when U.S. Senator Jim Risch addressed the Idaho House of Representatives, which Agidius saw as disrespectful, and criticized Jordan on Facebook for missing a committee vote on a concealed weapons bill, a comment which was later removed. Agidius remained as communications director and responded to the allegations, "In my opinion, a problem never existed. I have enough to do here without worrying about what Paulette's doing. There have been a few instances when I've seen her do things she said she wouldn't do. Those are things I may store and remember, if I choose to run again." Agidius did not challenge Jordan in 2016.
