Extremist Ammon Bundy Files Bid For Idaho Governor

The Idaho Capital Sun reports:

He’s banned from the Idaho Capitol building, but that didn’t stop Ammon Bundy from taking the first step toward running for Idaho governor. Bundy, who lives in Emmett, filed paperwork Friday to appoint a treasurer to a campaign for governor. The anti-government activist appeared to have appointed himself as treasurer, but according to a Secretary of State Office tweet, a treasurer must be a registered Idaho voter.

During the past year, police arrested Bundy multiple times in Boise, with most of those arrests occurring at the Idaho Capitol. He was handcuffed and wheeled out of the Capitol on an office chair after refusing to leave in August. He was banned from the building for a year, but returned, which led to arrests for trespassing. Bundy returned again last month and was arrested twice in one day.

He is best known for a 2016 Oregon incident in which he, his father, his brother, and other extremists engaged in a lengthy armed standoff with federal authorities over grazing rights. Earlier this week Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin, who is also linked to militia groups, filed her own bid for governor.
