A dirty plot hatched by the local conservatives to deceive voters and with TEA Party Republicans pretending to be Democrats has thickened. A new outbreak of TEA Party conservatives who have filed for office as democrats has just come to light. Stay tuned, there are more to come.
Already, an infestation was discovered in Gallatin County: a bunch of local Tea Partiers filed paperwork to run as Democrats for local legislative races all from the same address. But the blight is worse than previously thought. Another fake Democratic candidate has now come to light.
Republicans have filed a “one-world government” conspiracy theorist named Michael Comstock for state senate district 34 in Gallatin County.
Comstock actually won a Republican primary in 2010, in another legislative district, but lost the general. He is a big name in Gallatin County Republican Party (his Republican campaign was featured on the Gallatin County GOP website (here’s a screenshot for when they take it down).
Comstock’s main focus is his concern about a possible takeover by “a one-world UN controlled government,” the Bozeman Chronicle has reported. In his campaign literature and on Facebook, he says he is worried about the impending collapse of civilization. He proudly calls himself “a TEA Party extremist” and believes the muppets have “sold out to socialism and bad behavior.” He is also in a band he named “Comstock Load” (gross).
April Buonamici is the actual democratic candidate in this race.
Comstock has tried to do this before, but his scheme was exposed. This time, he appears to believe that by peppering his website with the word “democrat” that we won’t know the difference.
I’m told that there are more fake candidates out there who have filed as democrats — readers like you are the most likely people to know who they are–email the tip line at firstname.lastname@example.org and help spread the word.
