From the story: The Democrats said Kroll also needs to explain comments he made in 2002 to Texas Monthly about antler genetics. The Cap Times said blogs have been raising a stir about that. And it forced Kroll to respond on his Web site. He said, "I cannot undo the slander, but I can be clear … I stand the sportsmen-and-women of Wisconsin, hunting-fishing recreation, and white-tailed deer." Kroll also said his ideas are not influenced by politics, but he said the Wisconsin matter has become political as Tuesday's recall election for governor approaches.
