Cowgirl has the story: According to the Washington Post…….
Republicans aren’t totally sold on Hill, who notably attacked a female opponent in the late 1990s for being unmarried and without children. But even a weak GOP candidate could put up a tough fight in this Republican-leaning state. And once the state’s legislative session ends, some fresher faces could jump in on the GOP side.
As if the dramatic stories flapping around about Hill’s extramarital affairs with tailed ladies of the sea weren’t enough….
Hill may have raised more cash than the other GOP candidates thus far- after all, he is a former US Congressman- but something tells me the MONTaliban members dominating the right wing these days won’t soon forget about Hill’s character flaws. Rep Ken Peterson wouldn’t likely associate with someone so far out of the mainstream and oh my…. what would the rough and tough proponents of the Cowboy Code of Ethics have to say about this?
The majority of donors to Hill are shady and scandalous lobbyists, moderate ex-legislators, wealthy insurance executives, and reluctant Helena insiders. Hill has yet to issue any statements in response to Mermaid-gate but the exposure may have played a part in some prominent members of the “moral majority” (which is neither) making contributions to Ken Miller- notably, a couple of the
masters of propaganda pillars of the community, Rep David Howard and Jeff Laszloffy (Montana Family Foundation). Republicans may be wise to distance themselves from the elderly Hill as there are a number of far superior GOP hopefuls in the 2012 Gubernatorial election.
