Disgusting SD-29 Antics: Raw Milk, Libertarian Switches Parties, State Sen Says Austin Bomber Had Some Good Ideas

Republican State Senator David Howard Makes Frightening Comments About Austin Serial Bomber

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A libertarian candidate switches parties because they hope to manipulate elections and voters by running in a primary that they find politically expedient. No, not this one or this one, the one I am talking about is 2016 Libertarian candidate for Montana State House District 57, Andrew Forcier.

That’s right, Mr. Forcier was beaten so badly in 2016 as a Libertarian, 85% to just his 15% he decided to try the Republican primary to spread his support for raw milk.

According to the Centers for Disease Control:

Raw milk can carry dangerous germs, such as BrucellaCampylobacterCryptosporidiumE. coliListeria, and Salmonella, which can pose serious health risks to you and your family.

Groan indeed. Forcier and his Republican primary opponent, David Howard, are in a race to the bottom in the primary for Senate District 29. One candidate is promoting dangerously unhealthy products that have killed children and the other is supporting hatred and bigotry.

Forcier may be practicing unethical and deceptive behavior in switching to the Republican primary as a Libertarian, but Howard’s campaign has taken a turn into the bigoted and macabre.

Republican State Senator David Howard had the gall to post this to Facebook claiming that the Austin, Texas serial bomber had some good ideas.

No words can even begin to describe the twisted mind of a man who would try to use the words of a serial killer to spread a message of hate about peaceful LGBTQ Montanans. But sadly we have seen this become the norm in the modern Republican party.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I feel really bad for real Republicans. This has nothing to do with them and I really hope they can get back to nominating candidates who are in touch with average, hardworking Montanans.

Until that time I’d recommend voting for something better in 2018.

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.
