Another reason why these rags have no credibility. Tester and Montana Dems use Hilltop, which ran THREE dark money orgs in '12 and spent over a million dollars to keep Tester's seat, but it's a small state Senator who is "most" tied to dark money in the state.
This article completely misses the points of the criticism, which is that Baucus resigned ENTIRELY to give Walsh the advantage of taxpayer funded offices and media for the remainder of the campaign. In the same way Walsh was unrepentant about using taxpayer dollars for personal gain with his position in the National Guard, he obviously won't have much problem using taxpayer money to help his re-election. Montanans shouldn't be having their tax dollars, which are earmarked for public services, funneled through unions and corrupt politicians to help further their pet political causes and keep them in office.
"But Rehberg, who had no response when asked directly how much outside interests had spent in this race, doesn’t seem to be too troubled by where that money is coming from. "
What a douchey excuse for journalism. Outside interests aren't allowed to coordinate with the candidate, and knowledge of their activities would be illegal. But to the liberal press, its a negative for Rehberg. Please...
A union rep in Nebraska doesn't like Mitt Romney. Way to find some objective information to write an article about.
BTW Other unions are on the side of Obama. Nebraska's duly elected representatives are on the side of the XL pipeline, its only a president they didn't vote for who is holding it up, while Nebraskans suffer since they can't get good paying jobs when the Feds are so beholden to environmental interests. Blaming Republicans for wanting to put in place a policy that is agreed upon by Senators and Reps from Nebraska because Obama is more beholden to environmentalists than Unions isn't some grand scheme of Mitt's hypocrisy just cause you found a union hack to say it is.
Lame. Yellow Journalism at its finest.
What a tool. This guy owes Missoula and the entire community a huge apology. People here are very open minded and to try and make us look backwards and hateful to the rest of the world by creating such a story is very unfair and dishonest. Don't come here and make up stories and lies about our people just to cover your own drunk mistakes!
Part of the overall problem is that we tend to think we can use incarceration as some kind of solution to all of our social ills. In addition to often being more expensive, we are now seeing how this creates more problems. In addition to exacerbating mental illness, people incarcerated are at very high rates of contracting diseases like HIV and Hepatitis C. They are subject to sexual assault. They can often learn to be better criminals from other people they are incarcerated with. The marks on their record make it difficult to find jobs or possibly go to college when they out. This means they also often end up on public assistance. When are we going to find more effective solutions instead of pouring money and liabilities on our backs through this ineffective expensive method that just creates more problems in the long run and ruins peoples' lives.
How is someone "almost" physically intimidated? Maybe you should look up some of the incidents of unions thugs who actually physically attacked people, before decrying the "almost" intimidation of the right...
