Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) will not vote for Tracy Stone-Manning, President Joe Biden’s controversial nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), because of new revelations about her involvement in a past ecoterrorism plot.
Daines said Tuesday in a Senate floor speech that he would have welcomed his fellow Montanan’s nomination for BLM director if not for the “alarming” and “disturbing” new details about her role in a 1989 tree spiking crime.
“The picture she and her advocates painted about her involvement in this crime is that she was the innocent hero who helped put bad people in jail,” Daines said. “Well, in recent weeks, we learned there’s a lot more to this story.”
