Yesterday, Montana’s new Governor, statewide elected officials, and legislators were sworn in. Each took an oath to support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Montana.
But one Montana lawmaker is already accusing his own party of violating that oath. Rep. Krayton Kerns (R-Laurel) wrote on his website today that:
Political moderates on my team side-step their oath by committing themselves to the principle of compromise…With every compromise, freedom fades and government grows.
Kerns says he believes that “less than 25 percent of elected officials honor their oath of office. Such a small percentage is horse poop.”
