Rehberg spoke Monday before the state legislature. As the Helena Independent Record reports. "When I first heard his decision, like many of you I wanted to take action immediately," Rehberg said. "I asked: How can we put some of these judicial activists on the Endangered Species list?"
Rehberg was then quickly denounced by the executive director of the state Democratic Party, Ted Dick: "Congressman Rehberg's veiled threat against federal judges he disagrees with is in light of the murder of a federal judge in Tucson less than a month ago."
