The Montana GOP Hypocrite of the Week Award Goes to….

You’d think that a man who has plastered his Facebook page with anger-laced admonitions against those who would use the law and the courts to silence political enemies or limit free speech would be the last person do just that.

Well, you’d be wrong, if you were talking about TEA Party Republican Art Wittich.

Wittich’s Facebook page lauds the first amendment [screenshot], and is littered with posts against those who would “use the courts to punish their political enemies.” [screenshot]  He also lashes out against those he claims are “applying the law in a discriminatory way to punish political enemies” [screenshot] or  “silence opposition.” [screenshot].

Yet the Montana press have caught on to the fact that Wittich is suing a man who wrote a letter to the editor informing readers of the corruption case against Wittich and supporting Wittich’s opponent in the GOP primary, which Wittich lost.

As the Bozeman Chronicle reported, “in April, a jury found that Wittich took illegal corporate contributions from an anti-union organization in 2010. A judge ordered him to pay more than $80,000 in fines and costs.”

From the articles on this nonsense, Wittich seems to be building his glass house upon the premise that it isn’t a crime to break the law.

So for perpetrating this hypocrisy on the people of Montana, Art Wittich is the Montana GOP Hypocrite of the Week.

I’m sure the honor is nothing compared to being named National Committeeman by the Montana GOP (which says a lot about what makes one a leader in Republican circles these day) but we do what we can to tell it like it is. So pat yourselves on the back Montana Republicans. You’ve wowed us once again.

As for Wittich, it looks like he’ll have plenty of time to celebrate his award.  Wittich didn’t just become the  first Montana politician in 75 years to be found by a jury to have violated our campaign laws, voters rejected him in favor of Bruce Grubbs in the primary election.

  1. Liberty. Sounds like a good idea. Get off your high horse and try it sometime, Manzella. Jeee….zus H. Christ!! That’s not cussing, by the way, if you use his full name like I did (H. stands for “Himself”). I may be short on all the facts but I know one thing for sure: fundamentalists Christians and Constitutionalists are severely lacking in a quality I’m sure Jesus had in copious amounts: a healthy sense of humor.

  2. As opposed to an unhealthy sense of humor, which I freely admit that the fundamentalists do have. I see them laughing all the time….but at what??!! Jee..zus! Beam them out of here now, please. You promised.

  3. Do you think anybody intelligent wants to hire a lawyer such a Wittich, who in the laws regulation, was using money illegally for candidacy? What does that tell the average Businessman who wants an Honest lawyer who fights for them?

    Wittich did it to himself. A lawyer not following law? Who wants That?

  4. Art Wittch doesn’t understand Montana politics or Montana history. In 1982, Larry Williams who was a Republican candidate for US Senate sued a constituent for libel. The Montana Supreme Court decided the case (DA82-50) The court said Williams was a public official and he could not expect to prevail when a citizen defamed him. Slander/libel of a public official seems to be a voter’s first amendment right in Montana. If Wittich keeps up these frivolous lawsuits, he will be in court declaring bankrupcy due to excessive legal fees.

  5. I’m beginning to believe most sincerely that both Art Wittich and Donald Trump are suffering with mental disorders. And, I’m not try to act ugly in saying it. Both are obsessive and compulsive, malfocused and bitter. Both seem unable to leave the immediate and seek a brighter path.

    Wittich cannot stop fighting the fact that he was found guilty of political campaign misconduct or understand with clarity why he was not re-elect or why others view his behavior as unqualified anger rather than reason. He is plagued with demons that will not leave him alone. Wittich cannot kill the demons until he gets professional psychological help. I truly hope the man does so, for his own sake first and then for the sake of his family and friends.

    Donald Trump, too, is obsessed. He is not satisfied with just vanquishing critics and opponents, but with destroying them, tearing them into shreds and burning them to ashes. Example: Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who destroyed himself at the RNC by not endorsing Trump and urging delegates to “vote your conscious.” Trump couldn’t let that go. After the convention, Trump once again brought up the false assertion that Cruz’s father was a part of a plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Why? Cruz had been vanquished; he became unimportant as soon as he walked off the RNC stage. Trump should have been focused on his Democratic opponent, not Kruz. Trump continues to blast Khizr Khan and his wife. He can’t let them go. Trump should be focused on the national issues, not the Khans. Now Trump is once again asserting that the election is rigged in favor of the Democrats. I will not be surprised if Trump quits the race.

    Sarah Palin walked off the job in Alaska after she and McCain lost. Trump doesn’t want to lose. Wittich cannot accept that he has.

  6. Perhaps Montana’s politics and its TEA-GOP are better than elsewhere, but it seems optimistic to limit the State to only 52 Hypocrite Awards during a year.

  7. I would suggest that from now on Art should be called Art “the most corrupt politician in Montana History, based on fines” Wittich but I am afraid he would sue me for suggesting it.

    I feel for you Art. There are no bigger crocodile tears than right wingers, who lost their primary, croc tears. Lol.

    wittich is a perfect example of another sicko republican who would not know the truth if it came up and bit him in the butt. Most republicans are evil yet people keep getting sucked in to believing them. Anybody that likes wittich or t-RUMP are just exactly like them. Republicans are greedy people who are only out for themselves. Yet there are a lot of suckers out there.
