consultants are sandburs

The "Congressional Leadership Fund" is flooding Montana with negative advertising against Democrat Rob Quist. OpenSecrets.org lists the moneymen behind the effort, some giving millions; three pages, no Montanans.

This link. Also informative of how they operate; here. They independently sling mud at Democratic Party candidates. It's their habit. Their Gestalt. Their reason for existing. Those are 2016 numbers, but those folks are tampering in Montana now.

The first link, go to each of the three pages of donor listings. Do a word search, each page, even the last low-budget page, search = Montana.

Go figure.

Second link; the nutshell info:

2016 PAC Contribution Data
Contributions from this PAC to federal candidates (list recipients) $0
Contributions to this PAC from individual donors of $200 or more ( list donors) $50,490,681

Fifty million dollars and not a single contribution to a campaign. Citizens United was a Supreme Court opinion inviting abuse, and these folks RSVP'd big time. The only thing "super" about this SuperPAC is the staggering amount of wealth being slung around when ordinary voting citizens struggle to make ends meet. It's more than grocery and rent money, and its not yours because these folks want it all!
