|Who are all the Bedfellows?|
Well it seems these ladies have had their fill of Commissioner Gallik not doing his job. Ironically Commissioner Gallik who has now been thrust into the limelight for allegations of unethical conduct is the very same person that is responsible for keeping Montana Political campaigns ethical and on the up and up. Kind of hard to pass judgment when your own hand is in the cookie jar wouldn’t you think. Incidentally, Will Deschamps, Chairman of the Montana Republican party was just in the news last week calling on Gallik to make a determination on a complaint filed the end of August 2009 against the Democrat party and Attorney General Steve Bullock who is now running for Governor. Apparently filing ethics complaints against Democrats to an entity controlled by an unethical Democrat Commissioner and a bully Governor aren’t going to get much traction. Read Deschamps letter to Commissioner Gallik at the Montana Republican Party website here.
It does stand to reason that no matter what the complaint 2 ½ years to make a determination is an inappropriate amount of time. How can any of the regular Montana citizens hold any respect for a government that lives in shadows and advocates protecting their political bedfellows? What happened to open transparent government?
Kudos to john Adams for this fabulous indepth report and we applaud the courage of these fine ladies. We will be watching to see if any of them should be mysteriously “down-sized” after coming forth with this information. Of course if that is the case perhaps we will see four more candidates join Jim Lynch in a run for the Governor's office. Read the whole story over at The Lowdown and give us your comments.
