Helena – Wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale continues to lie to Montanans, and he’s just been called out again. While he has a long history of misleading Montanans, he’s being called out for his most recent falsehood, claiming that Sen. Jon Tester “took an income raise in the omnibus bill.”
PolitiFact ruled Rosendale’s claim “Pants on Fire!”, saying it is “flat wrong” given that Congress has frozen its salary since 2009. Rosendale previously earned a “Pants on Fire!” from the nonpartisan fact checker for making “an absurd claim” about Sen. Tester’s record on the first day of his campaign.
