News outlets across the country are reporting on the man with KKK ties who is running for Congress in Montana.
But John Abarr, R-Great Falls isn’t new to Montana Republican politics. He was part of the MSU-Billings young Republicans, ran for the legislature in 2002, worked as a phone banker for U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns’ campaign in 1994 (see previous link), and he’s also lent his endorsement in the form of financial support.
So which Montana candidates besides Burns meet the standard for KKK organizer John Abarr’s support? Rob Natelson. Natelson, who has been described as the Montana TEA Party’s legal expert, received a contribution from Mr. Abarr of $100 when he ran for Governor. That’s not a whole lot of money, but the question is, why is this nut-case supporting Natelson, and what does Natelson have to say about it?
