More Evidence Key Dark Money Group May Have Misled IRS
Western Tradition Partnership is now known as American Tradition Partnership. So far this election season, the group has advocated for candidates in Montana’s Republican primary, putting out a press release announcing that 12 of those candidates won. It also has launched a newspaper called the Montana Statesman, which claims to be the state’s ‘largest & most trusted news source,’ to be the state’s ‘only non-partisan newspaper’ and to have been founded in 1889.
A second edition of the purported newspaper was mailed to voters in Montana last week. Like the first edition, the 12-page paper contains many articles attacking Steve Bullock, the Democratic candidate for governor who as attorney general fought the partnership’s lawsuits against the state. One on the front page accused him of being soft on child molesters.
