Gov. Bullock to Dark Money Groups: "You're not welcome here."

Posted: Updated:

After a Montana Judge slapped a political group with a $260,000 fine for failing to disclose campaign spending, Governor Steve Bullock explains those groups are not welcome in the State of Montana.

First District Judge Jeffery Sherlock fined the dark money group American Tradition Partnership  with this civil penalty which demonstrates that new campaign freedoms extended to corporations don't make them immune to state disclosure laws. District Judge Sherlock said in a Tuesday opinion that the group has shown "complete disregard" for the laws of Montana, its courts, and the "tradition of free and open elections."

Governor Steve Bullock also had a statement  "The message to those who seek to hide in the shadows while using despicable tactics to con Montana voters is clear: you're not welcome here."
