For the Record: New GOP Legislator Has a Record for Assaulting a Minor

If you google new Republican legislator Gilbert Bruce Meyers (R-Box Elder) some disturbing information comes up.

The GOP legislator was convicted of assault on a minor for abusing his own children, which is a felony, and sentenced to four years in prison. Meyers appears on the Correctional Offender website known as Conweb.  You can see his profile here.

Meyers’ sentence included that he was not allowed to live in Broadwater County, where his children lived, because they were afraid of him and afraid to ride their bikes around the small town they lived in for fear of running into him or that he would find them on their way to and from school.

For some reason, there is no mention of this public information in today’s Havre Daily News puff piece on the new Republican legislator, nor could I find evidence that they reported the information when voters needed it – before the election.

It’s unfortunate that the Democratic party did not inform voters of Meyers’ criminal background during the campaign.  Meyers challenged Rep. Clarena Brockie (D-Harlem) who has served the district well for the past two years and is the dean of student affairs at Aaniiih Nakoda College.

Meyers was appointed director of Indian Affairs under former Republican Governor Judy Martz, but resigned suddenly after only a few months on the job “for personal and family reasons.”  Martz earned national derision herself for saying at a public speaking even that her husband never beat her but “then again she never gave him a reason to.”

  1. When I think of the money that was spent on Amanda Curtis and John Lewis, when the party knew they were going to lose — instead of on these winnable legislative races it makes me upset. Clarena Brockie lost to this by less than 200 votes.

    • Jeff McGrath,
      I am sure that the MT Dems total contribution of $2,000 to Amanda’s US Senate campaign did not empty their coffers. But I agree, the state Dems could have much done more for the legislative races, and the Democrat party will do more for the whole state when they find their backbone and come out fighting for once. Ignoring lies and attacks from the right-wing and not taking the false narratives head-on will always be a sure way to lose.

  2. This is yet another example that lends credence to Don Pogreba’s recent blogging that the political press is dead in this state.

  3. They vilified John Walsh over words, while this ‘piece of work’ untouched…………family values indeed!

  4. Is this the same incidence of a town electing a couple to the MT legislature? Ensuring themselves less representation instead of more?

  5. This is news? The democrats from the national leadership down to the state leadership were and still are asleep at the wheel. We lost the election and the ability to expose people like this fine example of repuglianism when we decided to throw the President under the bus and ran for the hills. We got what we deserved and we will pay dearly for our stupidity. Time to grow a set of balls as you become a citizen of the United States of Koch-you might need them.

  6. Interesting. The man’s a menace but nobody did basic research. What the hell is your party doing during elections anyway?

  7. I don’t think this is a case of the Democratic Party’s not knowing that Meyers had run afoul of the law. Meyers is Native American. I suspect that may have entered into the decision not to attack him for his conviction, especially given his sentence was suspended and served.

  8. I wonder if Adrian Peterson is a Republican?

  9. Hyperbole.

    It was a suspended sentence. He spanked his kid too hard with a sandal. It’s regrettable on his part, but not exactly worthy of “menace to society” status.

  10. $2000.00 from the State Democratic Party? That’s an insult.
