Controversial nominee to Oregon state wildlife commission rejected by Senate.





By Kale Williams | The Oregonian/OregonLive

James Nash, a retired marine and Eastern Oregon rancher, is no longer being considered for a seat on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife commission after environmental advocates raised concerns over his history as a big game hunter and potential conflicts of interest.

The Senate Rules Committee, which is set to vote on the nominees this week, released its agenda Wednesday. The four other nominees are listed, but Nash’s name was not.

A spokesman for Sen. Ginny Burdick, who serves as chair of the Rules Committee, said Nash’s nomination would not be moving forward, but did not comment further. A spokeswoman for the Gov. Kate Brown, who put forth the list of nominees, said Brown had nothing to do with the removal of Nash from consideration.

Nash quickly came under fire after his name was revealed for years-old posts on his Instagram account that showed him posing next to exotic wildlife he’d killed during trophy hunts in Africa. Among the animals depicted were a hippopotamus, an enormous crocodile and a zebra.

1. Good

Allowing bad people to destroy the natural world has got to stop. We are currently proceeding at the level of the lowest amongst us. "And the idiots shall lead them" seems to be the watch word. I guess it all has to do with "freedom"
