MT Independent Political Spending (2012)

Truth About Montana Political Expenditures

Montanans are being told that a vast Right-wing conspiracy of dark money is invading state politics. In truth, independent spending supporting liberal candidates and causes dwarfs spending by outside groups in the state. We’re all for individuals and groups of individuals – be they labor unions, corporations, or grassroots groups – exercising their First Amendments rights. But the Left’s “Do as I say not as I do” record is the very definition of hypocrisy. This site simply uses publicly available information to show how these individuals and groups are connected and their true motives, both in their own words or by their associations.
