The media has really delved into the story
of Brad Johnson's failure to effectively administer the 2006
election, with a series of hard-hitting puff pieces about his
self-declared "victory." In a sense, that's what makes the
following transcript from Montana's News Station so entertaining:
Johnson says the tour is also a way to hear concerns
from administrators, so new policies can be formulated to make
elections run more smoothly.
"We just want to communicate to them the
facet that we're very continuous of the need to identify their
needs when it comes to running elections in Montana and to keep
strengthening this team that we have between the Secretary of
States office and the administrators."
