This is absolutely and 100% out of control. Montana deserves better than this clown.
Conrad Burns dropped me a postcard today. This wasn’t the Burns campaign, mind you, this had Connie’s signature on it which means he is using his franking privilege. You can see an Adobe Acrobat file of it here (Adobe Acrobat Required). Basically, Conrad
wanted me to know how hard is working for Montana:
Chairman of the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, I secured $1 million for the successful continuation of the Missouri
River Water Treatment Plant project in Helena.”
After, he tells me that the project will be completed in 3 years.
Simply put, this is the largest and most offensive violation of the franking
privilege I have ever seen.
HOW CAN THIS BE LEGAL? There was no other purpose for this postcard then campaigning. Plus it uses all of Conrad’s “me, me, me” campaign rhetoric. “I secured…” Blarg.
Perhaps most offensive is that Conrad Burns can afford to send this postcard on his own. For the love of Mike, he raised $6.7 million dollars?!?!??! I am glad that Connie is making sure that he is using federal funds to put him back in Washington so he can continue spending money like a drunken’ sailor. Unbelievable!
