…(Stace) Nelson says he was informed Tuesday that he is being moved off the Agriculture Committee because of his opposition to a 7,000 head dairy operation, and he?s calling it ?Chicago-style politics.?
“The action itself I think is rank corruption at its worst,” Nelson, a Republican from Fulton, said.
Nelson even sent out a Tweet on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon that said he is being removed from the House Agriculture Committee by Rausch because of his opposition to the dairy operation.
“In the conversation of this, (Nelson said) ‘It looks like I’m being relieved of my position because of my opposition to this dairy.’ He (Rausch) made it very clear that his feelings were of that sort,” Nelson said.
“That’s totally false. I’m aware of that situation but that’s not the reason I would need to move him if that indeed happens,” Rausch said.
