Hart Defends Taking Public Timber

Apparently, state Rep. Phil Hart has been busy writing opinion pieces this past week, defending his stands with the Internal Revenue Service and the Idaho Tax Commission. Below, in this thread, you will find his comments re: my use of the description "tax-dodging" to describe him in a recent Sunday Huckleberries column. Now, in a commentary on his re-election Web site, Hart conjures the images of Lewis & Clark to defend his taking of timber from public land to build his Athol home. You can read "Media controversy about logs & Phil Hart" here.

Thoughts?
