Dennis Rehberg Lies About Owning Stocks

Shares

It seems that Montana’s millionaire subdivision rancher/Congressman has a RomneyDenny Rehberg - Caricature problem: to him, a couple of hundred thousand dollars isn’t anything at all.

The Montana Democratic Party caught Rehberg in another falsehood this past week. While he told Bozeman’s KMMS radio that he “got rid of all my stocks back in 1996 because I never wanted to be charged with any kind of a—a charge like that,” it seems that only thing Mr. Rehberg got rid of was his fidelity to the truth.

In fact, Mr. Rehberg, who claims he is cash poor and struggling like many Montanans, has a pretty healthy investment portfolio.

I don’t care that Mr. Rehberg has a stock portfolio. I do, however, care that he can’t seem to ever tell us the truth—and one does have to wonder what he’s got to hide.

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.
