The board of directors of an American Tradition Partnership (ATP) dark money front group operating in Big Timber have now come to light.
The good people of Sweetgrass County discovered that ATP has been operating a front group in their community under the name Citizens for Constitutional Integrity. Board members of the front group include:
Doug Lair, who has already noted in the AP’s report
Robyn Roberts, a woman who like Geoff Goble made her money in California real estate and lives in the McLeod area.
Bob Faw, Sweetgrass County Commissioner
Geoff Goble, who also resides in McLeod and was also in the AP’s report
It takes only a visit the Sweetgrass.org website to show that Citizens for Constitutional Integrity is a front-group for ATP. Look at the “Contribute” page, which reads:
“Help maintain the integrity of Big Timber by making a generous contribution to SGCCI here. Note- contribution receipts will appear from American Tradition Partnership.”
Here’s a screenshot:
The donation page also explains how ATP (formerly Western Tradition Partnership) formed the Sweetgrass front group:
“WTP provided the training and toolkit that enabled SGCCI to grow into an effective grass-roots organization. We continue to share resources and strategies to further advance SGCCI and other local groups promoting and defending common principles and tenets.
Please join us in the fight to defend our local communities, Montana and our great nation itself from Gang Green’s eco-socialist agenda by donating to SCGGI through Western Tradition Partnership today!”
A group of citizens in Big Timber smartly decided to bring the Big Sky, Big Money documentary to the local theatre last December. The national expose, which uncovered potentially illegal collusion between secretive right-wing group ATP and Republican candidates, was shown free to anyone who wished to attend.
