Dimwitted, Incompetent Grifters All the Way Down: The Best Take on the Latest Zinke Scandal


You just won’t read a better take on the latest Ryan Zinke scandal (hiring his football buddy to vet climate science proposals at Interior than this take from Vox’s David Roberts. He points out what seems increasingly obvious–that our systems of accountability just don’t know how to handle incompetence and greed that’s conducted without shame.

I certainly hope the Montana press gets to this story and the rest of the mess Zinke has made of Interior sometime.

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.
