VENTURA, Calif. -- The California Fish and Game Commission has removed its president after he was criticized for killing a mountain lion in Idaho.
Commission members voted Wednesday to replace Dan Richards.
Richards, who was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2008, has said he plans to remain on the five-member commission until his term expires in six months.

Well, they got him out of office. I don’t think they can bump him off the commission entirely, but you never know in California.
What was her name?.........
When CA finally implodes, the tards will be astounded that their left-wing paradise failed.
You and I will be bailing them out and they will not learn anything until a little while later when the entire country collapses.
Thanks for the update and remembering to ping us.
HERE IS A REMINDER TO EVERYONE OF WHAT THIS WAS ABOUT.
Here is what all this is about.
Escalating a battle between hunters and animal welfare groups a conflict that could result in major changes to Californias endangered species and hunting policies 40 Democratic state Assembly members Friday sent a letter to Dan Richards, president of the California Fish and Game Commission, demanding that he resign.
The controversy has prompted an outpouring of support for Richards from hunting and fishing groups, many of which see Richards as the most reliable vote for their issues.
The stakes are high. The five-member commission not only decides which species to list as endangered, it also sets policies on everything from hunting to Californias new system of marine protected areas, which ban fishing in areas off the coast.
If Richards, who was appointed to the five-member commission by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, resigns or is removed from the panel, his replacement would be named by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown. And thats a move that for the first time could give the commission a majority of members who tend to support the priorities of environmental groups.
Theres a lot at stake, said Jennifer Fearing, state director of the Humane Society of the United States.
Gaines, the hunting advocate, agreed.
Were very well aware that this is a key seat, as are the animal rights groups, he said. Theres only five votes, so if you get three, you win.
Being punished for acting in a legal manner? I see us Kalifornia taxpayers shelling out a HUGE payday for Dan Richards..
The Green Commie agenda to stop self-sufficiency, self-defense and the hoarding by Government of natural resources (energy, air, water, food).
The Commies want to control it all, and re-distribute the stolen private wealth as they see fit. Nancy Pelosi has no regard for anyone but herself, who is exempt from many of the policies she imposes, including financial reform and healthcare.
They will come for your 401K and for your guns, I guarantee it. They want us vulnerable so we require Government to survive, kind of like “The Hunger Games” where people are not allowed to hunt or forage for their own food, to keep them “in-line.”
Libs, in their eternal support of knee-jerk bleeding-heart policies and their quest of Utopian Statism (thank ML) continue to pry property rights and freedoms away from individuals and give them to the State, where another regulation of fine in ready and waiting for you. Try to fish. Try to get a gun. Try to open a business. Try to burn a log in the fireplace on Thanksgiving, the Spare the Air asshats will come and fine you.
It never ends, until it really, really ends, and that will be WW3 here, the Government and their Dependents vs. the Producers.
It will get ugly.
Dem states are going bankrupt fastest and a Dem federal govt is more likely to generously bail out the states that vote them into office. This is ANOTHER critical reason that we need Romney. He's not perfect, but he's not beholden to the commie states!
Hope it want Morgan Fairchild.
Dang auto correct
Dear California Democrats: Oprah announced today that she has made all of the mirrors magic in California. If you want to see who is causing all the troubles in California, then just look into the mirror and say, “Mirror, mirror on the wall....who’s the stupidest one of all?” Then stare intently into the mirror for five minutes, and you will see the answer. Oprah guarantees it!
The surprise here is that it took them this long.
Caught my attention until I realized.....
I think this was started by assembly man Ben Hueso, san diego, he got is boxers in a wad over this, he also is tryin to ban plastic bags in the whole state, plus a walmart is trying to open in a blghted area of town, giving jobs and affordable food to low income families, his boxers are in a wad over this, because they are not union stores, bein a good democrat he needs the union suppport...$$$$ no union store would even consider a store in that area of town..
PC: don’t look at our recall of higher powers and moralizing high grounds, we are not conspiring to legislate you (sarc off)
