Oregon voters give big vote of confidence to county official who stood up to Ammon Bundy

• rawstory.com

Harney County Judge Steve Grasty angered the militants with his critical comments throughout the six-week-long occupation, and the recall petition filed by general contractor Kim Rollins was triggered by his decision to bar Bundy from using a county fairgrounds building for a meeting, reported OregonLive.

But the recall measure failed by a resounding 70-30 vote, according to the Harney County clerk.

"I have to believe this wasn't just about Steve Grasty," the judge told the newspaper. "I think it's an affirmation that we did a lot of things right, and I mean the community when I say 'we.'"

Grasty, who has served since 1999 as a county judge, will step down when his current term ends in January.
