Another sensible idea from the ever-consistent Montana GOP. It seems they are concerned about the ethics of Monica Lindeen because she had the audacity to vote on a bill related to Internet service providers while serving in the Montana legislature. Lindeen, you see, the Republicans argue, should have put her investments in a blind trust.
I think that makes a ton of sense for part time, citizen legislators like Montana has. Real sensible. I also assume that all the Republican members of the Montana Legislature who are farmers or ranchers refuse to vote on ag issues, and those who are business owners refuse to vote on taxes, regulatory matters, and wage increases. I’m also sure that Jack Wells excuses himself from votes about union issues.
It’s a cute attempt to equate the serious ethical lapses of the Republicans in our state with Lindeen, and a pathetic one at that.
And the Howard Stern ethics argument? Someone needs a soundbite analogy course, stat!
