A Republican Party campaign stunt designed to make Montanans think Senator Jon Tester was hiding his position on an issue has had some unintended consequences.
The MTGOP sent out an email saying they were offering a $100 dollar prize to anyone who could get Tester’s position an Obama administration proposal.
So Tester’s campaign spokesperson did so and claimed the prize. If he doesn’t have to split the hundred bucks with the media outlet who ridiculed the gimmick, he says the money will be donated to the Billings Fire Department to help offset legal fees incurred by the taxpayers over Congressman Rehberg’s lawsuit. Said Aaron Murphy:
“The Montana GOP can make its check payable to the Billings Fire Department to help with legal fees brought on by Congressman Dennis Rehberg’s lawsuit against firefighters.”
