The fine folks at the Montana Republican Party have a television ad scheduled to go up today that contains lies about Steve Bullock.
The ad says, “Attorneys General across the nation, Republicans and Democrats, joined together to fight Obamacare at the Supreme Court.”
According to documents filed with the U.S. Supreme Court, twenty-two Attorneys General filed a challenge to the Affordable Care Act. All are Republicans, as you can see from this list.
And so, it appears that even the Montana Republican Party is aware that its candidates can’t win without lying to the voters. Stations are prohibited from running ads unless they “make a reasonable inquiry” to determine whether this advertising is true. Airing false advertisements would be a disservice to Montana voters–and a violation of federal law.
