Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mon., informed “The Faulkner Focus” on Thursday that the Senate Vitality and Pure Assets Committee voted 10-10 on the controversial Bureau of Land Administration nominee Tracy Stone-Manning as a result of she is “not match to serve.”
STEVE DAINES: Harris [Faulkner], it’s outrageous. I sit on that committee; we simply voted no, that we should always not advance her nomination–it was a 10-10 tie. You point out tree spiking. That is what a tree spike appears to be like like. That is as you precisely describe. They drive these nice massive spikes into bushes, and as you described, when the logger tries to chop it, the blades explode like a grenade and so they can severely injure our kill loggers or sawmill operators.
These are all about of us a part of Earth First; They had been an eco-terrorist group. Mrs. Tracy Stone-Manning was proper in the midst of that exercise. That is the information that got here out there to the committee in simply the final 42 days. It was by no means out there earlier than she wrote this letter and mailed it on a rented typewriter. It was a really threatening letter, it was vile, it was laced with profanity principally threatening the oldsters in Idaho saying you higher not go in that forest as a result of the bushes have been spiked.
That’s eco-terrorism. That’s why I don’t imagine she is match to function President Biden’s director of the Bureau of Land Administration.
