MTGOP Chief Legal Council Jim Brown Proud of His Work to Defeat Montana’s Ban on Corporate Funding of Elections

by jhwygirl

Jim Brown, a Dillon attorney, chief legal council for the Montana Republican Party and executive board member, and legal representative for American Tradition Partnership is pretty proud of his defeat of Montana’s 100 year old ban on corporate funding of elections here in Montana – here he is boasting on Bozeman’s once-and-future state representative JP Pomnichowski’s facebook page:

Brown’s a hypocrite. Just like a lot of stuff we saw from the big government GOP this last session in the Montana state capitol, Brown is proud of his role undermining Montana’s constitution, yet back in May he whined about a commissioner of political practices ruling which allows parties to spend an unlimited amount of cash on staff and other similar services towards a candidates campaign.

Sounds to me like Brown takes all this election law stuff as some sort of game to be won (or lost), regardless of the consequences. Bad for him to lose at the commission of political practices when it involves unlimited money, but somehow great for everyone when it involves the U.S. Supreme Court allowing unlimited corporate money.

It’s good to see how clearly the Montana Republic Party positioned itself with regards to undermining Montana’s constitutional ban on corporate funding of elections. It’s chief legal counsel representing the party which sued the state on election law?

Republicans around these parts want to preach and lecture and champion the constitution, yet they’ve no respect for Montana’s. History means nothing, and our forefathers tonight are spinning in their graves.

While the Copper King zombies start plotting their return to state and national politics.

Government is FUBAR, people. FUBAR.

The Montana GOP? Disgraceful.

    I’m curious.

    Does this promote backlash?

    That is, will Montanans rise up and punish the Reps this Nov.?

    There certainly should be a backlash. But we haven’t begun to see the full force of the frontal attack yet. The deluge of money and lies that is on its way may be so overpowering that an effective backlash might not be possible.

  3. I think Alaska’s Joe Miller is the epitome of the Republican hypocrite. He claimed he want to support the Constitution and “freedom,” but actually tried to destroy election law. He lost, badly, to his more centrist Republican incumbent whom he had beaten in the primary. He took his defeat even worse.

    He and his Tea Party types, using a flood of Koch brothers money, in fact attacked the Constitution. They wanted to repeal the entire 16th and 17th Amendments and parts of the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 14th.

    He also allied with the Alaska “militia,” the well-armed northland version of Montana’s “Freemen.”

    He and his Tea Party dimwits are anxious to take government subsidies, even if they don’t qualify for them, but don’t want anyone else to get any.

    It’s just good old cognitive dissonance. It’s a wonder their heads don’t explode. Hopefully the Montana public will catch on my November.

    Hey you guys definitely need help.

    How ’bout some slick new ads?

  5. No emerging democracies are using the US Constitution as their models.

    Clay Jenkinson describes himself as an historian who initially sided with Justice Marshall in Marbury v. Madison, thought of Thomas Jefferson as quirky, mired in the Enlightenment.

    Now, he has rounded back to the Jeffersonian model, believes that Jefferson would be horrified to learn that the US is operating with a two hundred year old manual, and says we are long overdue for a Constitutional Convention.
