A day comes when all the talk must come to something, the rubber must hit the road and we all must get serious about the realities at hand.
It seems that Greg Gianforte lives in a fantasyland though. He thinks he can purchase a congressional seat in honor of the memory of Copper King William Clark. Gianforte spent 6 million dollars to try and purchase the Governor’s race and lost and now he thinks he can hide behind slick TV ads and not hold campaign events.
Montana is being hoodwinked by Gianforte. A tricky guy with a slick plan and lots$$ of money.
Greg Gianforte is trying to buy this congressional special election with so many slick TV commerical buys, robocalls, online video attacks and absolutely no campaign events. It makes you sick.
He would be talking to the voters of Montana if he actually cared what they thought. He would be traveling the state, having real conversations and touting his record and plans.
Let’s dissect why he’s not:
Gianforte outsources jobs, he doesn’t create them:
2nd: His plans, what are they you ask? Good question. A lot of good questions to be asked of Gianforte these days, but all you’re likely to get is a lot of huffing and puffing about nonsense.
Montanans are wondering when New Jersey multi-millionaire Greg Gianforte will come clean about his record of outsourcing jobs and hurting American workers, which voters rejected last November. Here’s a reminder:
- Gianforte profited off of helping companies eliminate American jobs and ship them overseas. As the former CFO of Gianforte’s software company put it: “Greg is a single-issue candidate, saying `I’m going to create jobs,’ but his experience is in eliminating jobs.”
- A former president of RightNow Technologies, Susan Carstensen, is now saying publicly that the company was chiefly engaged in “eliminating jobs.” “The purpose of our business was to cut costs for companies, by eliminating and outsourcing jobs overseas with technology solutions for customer service,” she wrote.
- Gianforte cut costs for his own company by outsourcing jobs to Armenia and India. He even admitted that the “movement toward outsourcing” has been one of “the bigger drivers” in his business, and touted that his company has “deep relationships with many of the top outsourcers.”
- When theBillings Gazette asked Gianforte about his business practices being tied directly to outsourcing, Gianforte went “silent” and “wouldn’t comment” any further.
- After a report found that Gianforte may have outsourced jobs to reduce labor costs, the Billings Gazette editorial board called him out on wages, saying “he may not have wanted his own employees to experience wage growth.”
And the list goes on.
Multi-millionaire Greg Gianforte built a career out of helping companies outsource jobs. With a record like that, how can Montana workers expect him to stand up for them in the U.S. Congress?
Montana voters rejected Gianforte’s profiteering once before, and we won’t let him talk his way around his disastrous record this time either.
