The person Kellogg who they replaced him with is a good guy. Avid fisherman.

Is he also a hunter? or are we going to see a future of him selling hunters down the road to protect other “fisherman.” :shrug: I’d be more content if he was also an avid hunter.

Conservation groups called for his resignation and were joined by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and 40 Assembly Democrats, who questioned how he could enforce state hunting laws that he seemed to disrespect. Richards replied by comparing his actions to those of Californians who gamble in Nevada.

The hunt proved to be a legal problem for Richards, because the ranch did not charge him its usual $6,800 hunting fee. State law limits commissioners' gifts to $420 a year and requires repayment within 30 days to avoid penalties. Richards paid the ranch after the 30-day limit, but the state Fair Political Practices Commission let him off without punishment in April.

Richards was unapologetic on the eve of Wednesday's vote, describing his critics as "enviro-terrorists" in an interview with the San Jose Mercury News. But the subject was never raised at the meeting, and Richards' only comment was to express appreciation for his time as the commission's president, said Adrianna Shea, the commission's deputy director.

I Could not have said it better. Read the comment section in this article. It says a lot about much of the mindset in Ca. :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

This was a complete witch-hunt sponsored by HSUS and the bunny-huggers.

At least he had enough of a spine to stand up to those jack-wagons!

That's funny, Gavin Newsom and 40 Assembly Democrats, questioning how he could enforce state hunting laws that he seemed to disrespect. Just like the pot calling the kettle black.

Indeed.

He was defiant to the end!
