Clel Baudler - bringing Chicago politics to Des Moines

Regarding the guns at the statehouse by our elected officials.
“That’s a rumor, and it’s a good rumor because it keeps the lobby at bay, it keeps you reporters away from me. It’s a great rumor.” — Rep. Clel Baudler, R-Greenfield, a former state trooper responding to a reporter’s question Friday whether he is among the state legislators who have carried a gun into the state Capitol for personal protection.
We have a state legislator intimidating others by using an implied threat against reporters and lobbyists at the same time avoiding the question.
