The son of the judge who who issued the order that struck down’s Montana campaign donations as unconstitutional is a major donor to Rick Hill, the Republican candidate for Governor in Montana.
Follow the Money.org shows that Judge Charles Lovell’s right-wing nutjob son, Lance Lovell, gave Rick Hill $1000 this year. Here’s the screenshot.
Lance Lovell isn’t just a major donor to Hill. He also spends his days representing the Montana GOP in frivolous lawsuits as well as defending wealthy out-of-state landowners who try to keep fly fisherman out of rivers that they have a constitutional right to fish.
On Oct. 9, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Lovell’s decision was wrong and reinstated the campaign contribution limits. The Billings Gazette reported today that Hill is now asking Lovell to stop the restraining order issued by Judge Seeley so that he may spend his illegal money on campaign ads.
