That an elected member of the Legislature would post something this patently offensive and clearly racist, especially in the wake of the Cebull debacle, should be surprising. Given the last session, however, it seems like it’s nothing we shouldn’t expect.
Now, some would tell you that highlighting these kinds of remarks is more about partisan games playing than actual discussion of policy. They’re wrong. When Republicans get elected, people like David Howard gain entirely undeserved positions of power in the Legislature, wasting precious time and more damagingly, sending the message that Montana is a state that not only tolerates, but elects racists.
