Representative James Knox, Continues to Dig his Hole
I’d sure appreciate if Montana’s Speaker of the House, Mike Milburn, would assert some control over his representatives. I’m tired of defending their actions as well as defending myself FROM them, one in particular. James Knox sent me an email a few minutes ago.

My lawyer will
I and my wife have printed all conversations and the message you have posted on the web is not in any of our history. I ask that you email me the date your claim of this valid message else I will be taking legal action for slander against my wife.
Your call, I will.
James Knox, you asked for it so you’ve got it! The date in question is April 5, 2011. Would you care to look at the screenshot again? Although I do actually like your lovely wife Alicia, I don’t care for dishonest politicians. Just one time, I’d appreciate if you could accept the blame and move on- you could even try apologizing for your increasingly improper behavior. If I were you, I would be more concerned about the other allegations circling about you. Here’s a screenshot anyway though, watch for any grammatical mistakes, as I’m sure they are the fault of someone else, perhaps George Soros. I feel the need to remind you that Mr. Knox would NEVER use poor grammar….
Oh, but it gets even worse. This evening, in reply to a letter sent by Hiedi Handford of Montana Connect Magazine, Rep Knox responded in a delightful manner- the exchange is as follows:

You are so full of shit Knox. Look beyond your own damned nose……
Oh – and you and your wife celebrating patients suffering? What a nice couple you are…….”I’m glad we can take medicine away from people who need it”
Please move back to whatever rock you climbed out from under in whatever state you came from. You most certainly are NOT a Montanan.

FYI that post is slanderous and photo shopped I have initiated legal actions. If you actually can believe my wife would actually say that or I would in such poor English say something. Your high.

Knox, by informing others that I used Photoshop to create a false post from Alicia Knox that he claims doesn’t actually exist (although it did before it was deleted) he is actually slandering ME. Admonishing Hiedi over his unwillingness to use poor English gave me a chuckle because the post in question was actually one of his finer ones grammatically speaking. To mock a legitimate cannabis patient, calling her “high”, however; is reprehensible.
I must admit that posts about Knox were initially sort of sickly entertaining but now, I’m over it. I’m tired of him hearing of his antics. I’m tired of him mocking critically ill Montana voters, I’m tired of paying his salary and $733/mo health benefits, and I’m tired of him embarrassing the Republican Party (of which I’m a disgruntled member) and most of all, I’m tired of his actions contributing to our legislature’s public humiliation. A biennial legislative session shouldn’t remind us of a Jerry Springer or Days of our Lives episode.
Do we really want someone like this representing us?

Celebrating Montanans in pain, a Knox family tradition
Representative James Knox and his lovely wife Alicia are pretty excited at the prospect of agony for 30,000 Montana citizens suffering from debilitating diseases. Rep Knox posted the following on his Facebook recently.
Montana makes history as the first legislative body to repeal the use of marijuana!!!! It requires the Governor not to Veto it but historical still!! Montana, many of us have worked long and hard for this moment. The people have spoken through their support and signatures on the repeal petition, the legislators supported the people. Governor…Please follow through and let the peoples will pass. April 1 at 2:56pm
Knox’s wife, Alicia Ridge Knox seems very excited her husband has assisted in the GOP’s mission to legislate Montana’s morality at the expense of those who will suffer needlessly as a result of his legislation. Knox’s above plea to Governor Schweitzer drew plenty of comments from his Facebook friends (and enemies), his wife’s benevolent comment appears last in the thread, posted below.
It is one thing to celebrate a bill's success, but this is sick.
Apparently Knox’s wife stands by her man, supporting her corpulent hubby’s diabolical endeavors, she also inadvertently destroys a couple of the GOP’s arguments in favor of repeal. First of all, she admitted it is medicine. Second, she agreed that people need it. Third, and by far most horrifying is the realization she just may have hinted at her sexual proclivities. Alicia Ridge Knox (be sure to add her as a friend) is one who obtains pleasure and sexual gratification from inflicting pain, suffering and humiliation upon others? Perhaps next session we should propose legislation ensuring those acts, along with the Republican’s most reviled Montana citizens (you know, those terrifying gays with an agenda) are felonious crimes.
*It should be noted that the couple professes to be Christian. One can only assume that they are proud members of the church of Reverend Harris Himes, who thinks that gay people should be put to death…. among countless other hateful beliefs.
