Last night, FRONTLINE revealed that ATP documents found in a meth house appear to contain evidence of “possible illegal ‘coordination’ between” the group and the candidates it supported, the Atlantic reported.
The boxes contained files on Mike Miller, Ed Butcher, Bob Wagner, Wendy Warburton, Jerry O’Neil and Derek Skees, who is now a candidate for statewide office. Butcher and Miller were discussed extensively on the FRONTLINE piece. The other names you can see in these screenshots.
The group filed a “motion for protective order” in court last month to try and require the Commissioner of Political Practices to keep these public documents secret because it contained the names of ATP donors. The state of Montana and ATP have filed briefs on the question of whether they can be made public. Thanks to tipsters you can download them here and here.
