Sheriff, feds: Rancher must be held accountable

RENO, Nev. (AP) — U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials say they agree with a Nevada sheriff's position that rancher Cliven Bundy must be held accountable for his role in an April standoff between his armed supporters and the federal agency. Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Bundy crossed the line when he allowed states' rights supporters, including self-proclaimed militia members, onto his property to aim guns at police. Bureau spokeswoman Celia Boddington, in a statement Saturday, said the case remains under investigation and the bureau is "working diligently to ensure that those who broke the law are held accountable." But she disputed Gillespie's contention that the agency mishandled a roundup of Bundy's cattle 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. The roundup was thwarted by Bundy and his armed supporters.
