Ammon Bundy’s Idaho
All roads lead to the Gem State lately as Ammon Bundy has moved to Idaho according to published reports. The Idaho Press Tribune reports that Ammon and his wife Lisa bought a house in Emmett last June. The property is valued at over $450,000 according to betteridaho.org. According to their web site, Mr. Bundy does not claim a homestead exception but has registered as a Republican in Gem County.
Could we see Ammon become involved in Idaho Politics once the situation in Oregon is resolved? Clearly he has brought the issue of Western Lands verses the Federal Government to the attention of the world. His next step is resolving a situation that may exceed his ability to control it. Let's hope and pray the Oregon standoff dissipates and not escalates.
