Leader of armed protesters in Oregon took out $530,000 federal loan

Ammon Bundy, a leader of the armed protesters who took over a federal building in Oregon, and his family are known for battling the federal government. But Bundy told CNN on Tuesday that he's not opposed to government and said that taking a six-figure loan from the Small Business Administration doesn't conflict with his political philosophy. Bundy borrowed $530,000 in 2010 for his company, Valet Fleet Service LLC, according to public records on Valet Fleet Service is a truck maintenance company in Arizona. "I am not anti-government," he said when asked about the loan while standing outside the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, adding that he thinks "there is a role for government and that the federal government's role is to protect the states from the outside world."...CNN
