(The Center Square) – Gov. Jay Inslee’s office has officially denied an alleged property purchase made in Idaho to be used for “retirement.”

In a post on X, the Idaho Tribune wrote that “we have begun hearing rumors that Washington Governor Jay Inslee has acquired a “retirement” property in Hayden Lake, Idaho. Is Governor Inslee, the man who presided over the vaccinations, the disastrous Antifa riots, and the anarchist zones like CHOP, welcome in Idaho?”

However, when The Center Square reached out to Inslee’s office about the alleged purchase, Executive Director of Communications Jamie Smith wrote in an email “that is untrue, pure rumor.”

Inslee currently owns a home on Bainbridge Island. He will be stepping down as governor in January after he announced he would not be running for re-election after serving three consecutive terms.
