Rumsfeld to Join Rehberg to Raise Money, Remember Failed Bush-Era Policies

Failed Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is scheduled to be in Montana later this month to stump for multimillionaire Congressman Dennis Rehberg--a move that highlights Rehberg's strong support of the failed policies of former President George W. Bush.

Rumsfeld, who resigned from office the day Jon Tester won his Senate seat, is known as the architect of one of the greatest misunderstandings of military intelligence in American history.  Rumsfeld was also a key supporter of the controversial Patriot Act, which Congressman Rehberg has supported repeatedly.

“Donald Rumsfeld is almost as out-of-touch as Congressman Dennis Rehberg when it comes to reckless decisions about our freedoms,” said Ted Dick, Executive Director of the Montana Democratic Party. 

Rumsfeld is holding a February 25 fundraiser near Bozeman for Rehberg, who was recently got caught hiding tens of thousands of dollars he’s taken from out-of-state lobbyists. 

“Donald Rumsfeld was a key figure in an administration known for its secrecy and lack of facts and transparency,” Dick said.  “After Congressman Rehberg tried to hide his lobbyist cash, it's no surprise he's now embracing Secretary Rumsfeld's support."
