Montana Republican Doing Some Light Ratfucking In Special Election Because He's Not Scared At All!
Vote for the nudey, not the rudey!
You may have heard that a Democrat is running for Montana's sole Congressional seat! His name is Rob Quist, he's a banjo-playin' liberal who's running against a fellow no one likes, and he's just crossed the threshold of $5 million raised, just like a real live candidate!
But Greg Gianforte, the Republican nominee for the seat Ryan Zinke gave up to spend more time knocking down sacred Indian sites, doesn't seem to be leaving anything to chance!
Which could be why my Montana-resident husband received a nice telephone call this week asking him whom he'd be supporting in the special Congressional election. "Rob Quist," he said, because my husband is not an idiot. (And because nobody likes Greg Gianforte, who lost to a Democrat for governor just last fall, underperforming Donald Trump by 10 percent.)
The young lady calling from the Idaho number thanked him and asked him to be sure to vote early! Early voting would start at 8 p.m. on May 25, she said, ever so helpfully!
Please do not listen to that young lady, fellow Montanans. May 25 (Thursday, which is fucked up) is election day; early voting is NOW.
We contacted the US Attorney for Montana, the Montana AG, the FEC and the FCC to complain A WHOLE LOT; all said it wasn't their purview. The Secretary of State's office did call back with a website though, after asking if the young lady might not just have misspoken.
Gonna go with HELL NO. That "misspeaking" was a bit too specific.
Greg Gianforte's campaign did not respond to a request for comment, but honestly, what could they say?
