Independent Record Editorial Calls Rehberg Out

Today’s Independent Record editorial about Representative Rehberg offers a strong rebuke of the the Representative’s tendency to put campaigning before governing, and is well worth a read. The key passage, a concise description of Rehberg’s tenure in Washington, comes at the end of the piece:

In the press release trumpeting his new chairmanship, Rehberg said he’d use the seat to “fight for reduced spending and improved oversight.” Hard to disagree with either of those goals, but so far the rhetoric has been significant while the substance has been insubstantial.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
