Rammell Clarifies Remark on Obama Tags


Rex Rammell has issued another *funny* clarification of his remarks on Obama hunting tags, via an email this morning. (Ready):

"Anyone who understands the law, knows I was just joking, because Idaho has no jurisdiction to issue hunting tags in Washington D.C."

UPDATE: Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo demands apology from Rammell:

“Rex Rammell’s comments are in very poor taste and should not have been said. Remarks like these should not even be made jokingly. We are engaged in a critical national debate over many major issues facing our country today. Remarks like these are not only unhelpful in that debate, but they undermine it. He should apologize for those remarks and for the perception they may have created.“

ANOTHER UPDATE: Idaho Gov. and gubernatorial candidate C. L. "Butch" Otter also condemning Rammell without naming him:

“Reckless and inflammatory statements like these gravely damage confidence in the political process and the good citizens who serve the public. As Governor, as an Idaho Republican and as a citizen of our state, I reject and condemn this kind of rhetoric. There is no place for it in Idaho.”
