What a Lying Phony
Six years ago new-comer Jon Tester ran one nasty below the belt campaign against Senator Conrad Burns. No lie was too bold for Jon-boy to use to defeat Burns. He distorted his votes, He ran ads questioning his ethics, and he accused Burns of ties with lobbyists, and on and on. In addition to smearing Burns thru the mud he repeatedly droned on and on about “K Street Lobbyists” and alleged connections to Burns. Jon also accused Burns of buying and selling “favors” thru the use of earmarks. Jon-boy promised 6 years ago while campaigning he would never-ever use earmarks and his first order of business when he got to the “culture of corruption” laden capital was to introduce legislation to eliminate ear marks.
I guess Jon must have had a change of heart about the evils of lobbyists since he is the number one recipient of lobbyist money in the Senate. Also Senator “No Ear Marks Never Ever” Tester apparently forgot his promise to Montanans to introduce legislation to eliminate earmarks. Not only did he forget that promise but “No Ear Marks Ever” Tester actually cast two votes on Thursday against amendments prohibiting earmarks.
Check out his vote roll here. So much for his promise of getting rid of earmarks
