A Republican candidate for U.S. Senate denounced the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks as “deep state” for investigating his alleged hunting violations.
Troy Downing, who’s seeking the GOP nomination, issued a statement Wednesday accusing the department of conducting a “witch hunt” against him, reported the Independent Record.
“It’s unfortunate the liberal Montana FWP deep state is on a witch hunt,” the Downing campaign said.
The statement came in response to a report this week by the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, which revealed Downing was charged with seven misdemeanor violations for buying or applying for resident hunting licenses as a non-resident and cited an eighth time for a similar violation.
