ICYMI: Congressman Zinke linked to shady supporters


HELENA -- Caught this week being connected to a supporter under investigation for securities fraud, Congressman Zinke was forced to turn over $5,100 in campaign contributions.

John Kevin Moore is alleged to be involved in a $2.7 million Ponzi scheme and contributed numerous times to Congressman Zinke’s campaign.

The 2014 records show Moore used different names and occupations, but the same Bigfork post office box number, to donate $5,100 within a month during Zinke’s 2014 general election campaign.” -- Missoulian (9/30/16) 

This isn’t the first time Congressman Zinke has blurred the lines on ethical campaigning.

 In 2015, he hired the head of his Super PAC Special Operations for America (SOFA), Scott Hommel, as his chief of staff.

Here’s what we know about the Super PAC SOFA:

“Congressman Zinke continues to demonstrate he’ll trample over Montanans in order to advance his own political career,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Montanans value honesty and transparency and Congressman Zinke continues to lie and undermine the public’s trust.”
