…but one does have to wonder what he had to say after he hung up on Missoulian reporter Keila Szpaller when she asked about the city’s budget.

Apparently it’s not yet been filed with the State of Montana (what does that make it? 6 months overdue?)

Bad, bad form, hanging up on a reporter.

And before anyone considers mention of the hang-up a focus on the “controversy” versus the facts, me thinks that any public official hanging up on a reporter is a well-worthy piece of news, especially when the reporter was trying to get the facts.

So what’s there to hide? Why hang up on a reporter? Why isn’t the budget filed yet? What is the problem?

We’re promised a story for Thursday’s Missoulian. Looks like it’s popcorn for breakfast, folks.

UPDATE: We update today with a link to the story and note that not just the city, but the county, too, that has failed to file its budget. At least Missoula’s consistent, huh?
