Ethics complaint against Gov. Bullock & Director of Commerce dismissed

Posted: Updated:

Today, Montana's Commissioner of Political Practices dismissed a complaint against Governor Steve Bullock and the Director of commerce Meg O'Leary alleging illegal use of a state owned plane.

The complaint claims, in August of 2014 the Governor used the plane to attend a Paul McCartney concert in Missoula---bringing with him the Director of Commerce.

Commissioner Jon Motl said one the reasons he rejected the complaint is because it came off as a frivolous attempt to embarrass Bullock during his re-election campaign.

The complaint was also rejected because it was filed in 2016, which is outside of the two year statute of limitations.

Motl added the trip to Missoula isn't considered a gift to the director as she was serving as staff to the governor for official state meetings during their time in Missoula.
