For some reason the Montana press liked Maryland Matt. When he was running for the House I could not get a paper to publish a letter to the editor adverse to him. The letter the Star wouldn't publish follows,,,,
Is it Matt for Montana or Maryland Matt for Matt? Matt Rosendale is unsuitable and unfit to be the Congressional Representative for Montana. He came to Montana from Maryland where he subdivided and sold real estate. Since arriving here he has continually distorted the truth including his claim that he represents Montana values.
I thought it was a Montana value to not lie and cheat. While running for office here, under a penalty of perjury, he signed documents claiming Maryland residency to get a huge tax break on the sale of Maryland property.
Rosendale lost his 2014 Republican race for the U.S. House. In 2016 he was elected to the office of Montana State Auditor. Before he had time to find the bathroom in the Auditor’s office he filed for the U.S. Senate from Montana, losing that election in 2018. Now, while Auditor, he is again running for the U.S. House. Obviously, he longs to return to the east coast. This is a great idea as long as he is not on the east coast representing Montana.
We need Kathleen Williams as our Congressional Representative. She has Montana values and will work for us in promoting healthcare, fiscal responsibility and protecting our public lands.
Today, I would add that she might even adhere to her oath of office. Unlike Maryland Matt, she would serve and protect the Constitutions of Montana and of the United States.
