Another Email Takes Aim at TEA Party Lawmakers

A second email is making the rounds in GOP circles this week from an anonymous gmail account called “Concerned Montanans.”  Here’s the first email.

While there’s no word yet on who’s behind these, it is interesting to note that the emails appeared to be focused on the house rather than the senate. Except for Matt Rosendale,  the Senate’s likely new TEA Party leadership candidates, Fred Thomas and Jennifer Fielder, appear to be escaping the flack so far.  Jason Priest isn’t running.

Miller and Rosendale  coordinate on a regular basis.

Wittich has held fundraisers for Rosendale in Gallatin County and elsewhere.

Be on the look-out for Dark Money coming Rosendale’s way since he can’t raise any of his own. Wittich and Priest will probably funnel it through the Montana Growth Network!

  1. Maybe Rosendale needs a ‘goatee’, huh? His drone ad is stunning!

  2. Couldnt help but notice that JP’s tee is on inside out and backwards. must have gotten dressed in a hurry for some odd reason!

  3. So who do you think is sending these emails, and why? And how do you stop them, or do the powers that be want them stopped?

  4. The Carbon County News reported that when police encountered Jason Priest he was wearing “socks.” Period.

  5. Miller is a has-been, and Priest is pretty much done anyway — they’re both not real relevant to the GOP any more. And Rosendale/Wittich may still be elected.
    This has got to be either a Dem plant or one of the SDM RINOs playing power games for the next legislature.

  6. What is an SDM RINO?
