The State of Montana failed in its attempt to convict Randy Vogel of illegally killing an elk. He was found not guilty on three trumped up charges that were, in my opinion, politically motivated.
As I wrote back in March under the headline “This Smells” this will probably be another failed attempt by the Democrats in the state to get Vogel’s boss, Congressman Denny Rehberg – and it was.
Vogel was hired as Rehberg’s state director on March 1, 2010. Vogel received a ticket on March 3, 2010. The incident was alleged to have happened in November 2009.
It’s cheap and trashy politics to say the least. Too bad the Montana media does not see it for what it is. There must be some tears flowing at the Montana Democrats HQ and at the McDonald Campaign office this afternoon.
Political observers have to be wondering who or what will be next in this “get Denny” circus.
