Will you let House leadership get away with this?
And these are the same folks in so-called leadership that pushed to stop me from video taping floor activity (on behalf of WyGO) from the “public” gallery in the Capitol — because they don’t want you to know what’s really going on under their so-called “leadership.”
The orders were to stop Bouchard (me) from video recording because it’s “their house” and they make the rules!
The reality is they just don’t want to be held accountable by anyone, and certainly not by Wyoming Gun Owners!
But now as a corrupt politician slides into the Wyoming Legislature, we see more of the same from the leaders.
Over the years several complaints have been filed against a politician while in office. And it is unfortunate for Campbell county residents that all prior complaints fell on deaf ears.
Sometimes justice comes later than sooner…
The current Governor, previous Governors, and let’s not forget the several prosecutors who were all given an opportunity to review complaints. Now they are all in a real conundrum for covering up for Sheriff Bill Pownall.
Of course WyGO was “on the ground” during Bill Pownall’s last Sheriff campaign in 2010.
***During his campaign several recordings of Sheriff Pownall were revealed, including evidence that he obtained and possessed at least one class III weapon without forgoing the required federal paperwork.
(You and I would go to jail and serve a hefty term for that offense)
***Insiders close to Pownall stated that as Sheriff he would refuse any applications by lawful citizens for Class III weapons.
(We take that as, only Pownall should own them)
***Insiders also leaked that Pownall was working on a gun owners database.
(A traffic stop gun registry for law abiding citizens)
There was even more…In fact, an entire slew of other reasons led us to believe that Pownall was a bad apple. Like all criminals, by the time they are finally discovered, they have already broken the law repeatedly.
And this is what election cycles are about, looking at backgrounds, reviewing actions, and verifying the credibility of any accusations against a candidate. Check, WyGO did that.
This is why WyGO worked diligently to expose Pownall’s real record and his refusal to answer our gun rights survey. And back in the sheriff’s race WyGO also pointed out that Pownall’s opponent, Dave Lauck, answered WyGO’s survey 100% correct .
Accordingly, WyGO ran a hard hitting radio campaign in Campbell county, and was the only organization taking a stand against Pownall.
During his run for House district 52, Pownall refused to answer WyGO’s survey once again.
Pownall is a fine example of this: If any candidate doesn’t trust you with your own guns, then you shouldn’t trust them with anything at all!
So why am I dragging out Pownall’s past corrupt accusations?
Here it comes, wait for it…
Recently unnamed complainants working inside of Pownall’s Sheriff Administration finally had enough of it, and sealed and delivered the evidence. Only this time there were too many people in the loop to turn a blind eye.
As it was during Pownall’s previous elections, the corruption could no longer be covered up. He and his political operatives could no longer cry foul against the evidence.
And what is the latest charge against the Campbell county top law enforcement officer?
Pownall directed his deputies to cover-up an arrest of his own son for — drunk driving.
And now with the WY Attorney General advancing to remove Pownall as Sheriff. We see exactly the opposite from the House leadership who call the legislature “their house.”
Instead of putting the brakes on Pownall, as they are empowered to do, they are just going about business as usual. Just last week leadership appointed Pownall to the powerful Wyoming House Judiciary Committee.
This is the committee, that is most likely to hear gun bills. And Pownall, a politician whose actions as Sheriff puts himself above the law — is now empowered by House leadership to dictate over the lives of Wyoming citizens statewide.
Real leadership would have refused to place Pownell on Judiciary and instead be calling for a special election for House District 52!
But all of this isn’t only on the shoulders of the so-called Leadership!
A super majority in the Wyoming house elected Kermit Brown and Rosie Berger to be their leaders — all by a secret ballot behind closed doors.
But we have a very reliable indication of who the house reps are in this “secret” majority. They are likely the same candidates who ran for the Wyoming house that also refused to answer Wyoming Gun Owners gun rights survey.
These are the politicians who refuse to put their real views on the Second Amendment in writing. And are the likely bunch that is responsible for electing current House leadership.
Kermit Brown and Rosie Berger have repeatedly refused to answer WyGO’s surveys as well.
All of this is the same kind of action you see in Washington DC, the good old boys are in control!
Like you, we’re mad as hell and were not to take it anymore!
