AJC: Man shot during Oxendine hunting trip (Update)

Posted By on Wed, Jan 20, 2010 at 12:21 AM

UPDATE: The paper now says the man was actually "sprayed" in the leg — not the face — and that the shooter was a 14-year-old male. Jim Galloway's got the incident report here.

Presented without comment, which really is another way of saying "here's another weird story involving John Oxendine." From the AJC:

A man hunting with Republican gubernatorial hopeful John Oxendine was "sprayed" in the face during an organized quail hunt in Dade County on Sunday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned.

Oxendine, the sitting state insurance commissioner, was hunting with his children at a quail hunting preserve when someone accidentally fired their shotgun and an unnamed adult "was wounded superficially," Oxendine campaign spokesman David Crim said. Oxendine was not the shooter or the person wounded, Crim said.

(deep exhale) According to the AJC, neither Oxendine nor his sons had hunting licenses, which could be a no-no even though they were on private property. A campaign flack told the paper that the quail hunting preserve where the incident took place is partly owned by the insurance industry executive who was linked to questionable campaign contributions that Oxendine received last year and later returned.
