The lies about Judge Sandefur’s record are funded by the Republican State Leadership Committee, which is spending big money to elect a Montana Supreme Court candidate with no judicial experience and so little local support she hasn’t even been able to raise $40,000 for her own campaign.
KXLH is reporting that the national Republican party (the Republican State Leadership Committee or RSLC) has swooped in and given more than twice that to a GOP firm.
In fact, as the Cowgirl Blog already posted, the cases cited in the ludicrous ads were the result of deals the prosecutor made with the defendants – the the prosecutor himself says so. Yet the airways are still filled with the falsehoods.
As KXLH reports, the RSLC “raises millions of dollars from many of the nation’s top corporations,” like ExxonMobil, Wal-Mart and others.
