Quist criticism unwarranted

Print Article

A Super Political Action Committee calling itself “Congressional Leadership Fund” is flooding our airwaves with shadowy propaganda criticizing Rob Quist for having a “big hat” and being “out of tune” with Montana. They’re pouring big bucks into the assumption that these allegations will shock Montanans into voting against Quist. Alternately, they give no rationale supporting his multi-millionaire opponent from California.

Quist, a homegrown Montanan, has earned the right to wear the hat. Interloper and failed gubernatorial candidate, Greg Gianforte, is as phony-baloney as creationist museums and jackalopes.

This Super PAC is a conglomerate of slippery out-of-state tricksters led by failed politician Norm Coleman (Minnesota) and whose largest donor is billionaire Sheldon Adelson (Nevada). Throw in some Texan oil tycoons and you have yourselves a super-duper super gang. These goons don’t care one iota about Montana or our citizens. They seek absolute power to rape and plunder Montana’s resources. The more science denying, flimflamming charlatans they can push into congress, the more they can pillage the land and its people for personal gain.

Quist genuinely represents Montana and strives to keep it “the last best place”. Ask yourself who embodies traditional Montanan principles of independent, strong-minded individuals in communities of resourceful, friendly folks. Then ask who epitomizes mudslinging, money-grubbing robber barons.

Malicious factions within and outside of Montana are doing everything possible to subdue your vote, so it’s important to get it done on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Raise your voice against rapacious outside interests and stand up for Montana, her resources and her citizens. Vote for Rob Quist to represent our true values in the United States House of Representatives.

Wanda LaCroix,

Arlee
