It was reported in the Whitefish Pilot Police Blotter on September 11, 2010, that a Whitefish woman was scared and disturbed enough to call the police after a political campaigner came to her door to pass out lit for a local house race while brandishing a firearm. The report came from Dakota Ave in Whitefish, which is in the house district that Derek Skees is campaigning to represent.
Distributing legislative campaign literature on homeowners’ private property while packing heat is a bad idea, but nonetheless it is endemic of the Tea Party mentality. These Republican posers are out of touch with main street Montana values, but the Skees campaign doesn’t appear to notice. Or maybe they just don’t care.
