Rammell Faces Misdemeanor Not Felony

Former gubernatorial and congressional candidate Rex F. Rammell is scheduled to appear in Magistrate Court here Sept. 27 on a misdemeanor charge of battery involving an altercation with another man a week ago. An earlier story in the Lewiston Tribune presumptively indicated Rammell was facing a felony charge. The Tribune's story was based on a probable-cause affidavit filed at the Idaho County Courthouse by Idaho County sheriff's Sgt. Carlos Martinez, which didn't indicate whether Rammell would be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. A formal complaint was filed at the Idaho County Courthouse Friday. According to Martinez's report, Rammell is accused of twice grabbing another man by the throat during a Sept. 8 confrontation. Rammell said during an interview Friday the Sept. 8 incident involving William Shira had to do with the Shiras allegedly trespassing on Rammell's property/Kathy Hedberg, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you expect Rammell to run again for statewide office in Idaho?
