PAC Money Secretly Pouring into Gianforte Campaign Through the MTGOP
New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte's PAC pledge has already been called into question once, but newly emerged details show PAC money is being secretly funneled into the Gianforte campaign.
"Montana's dark money kingpin Greg Gianforte is at it again, continuing to mislead Montanans about his bogus PAC pledge," said Jason Pitt, a spokesperson for the Montana Democratic Party. "For the second time Gianforte has been caught red handed violating his own PAC pledge. Clearly Gianforte's not 'tearing up PAC checks', he's funneling them through the MTGOP."
FEC reports confirm that the MTGOP has received more than $50,000 in PAC contributions. This is money that Gianforte himself helped to raise at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser. Now, Gianforte is "partnering with the MTGOP to get out the vote this fall."
Additionally, MTN reported that the MTGOP filed papers with the Commissioner of Political Practices to allow party staff to assist campaigns. This means that more PAC money-funded MTGOP staff will be helping Greg Gianforte on his crusade to mislead Montanans and push his out-of-the-mainstream views onto our state.
