Helena – Last week, millionaire Californian Troy Downing decided to boast about his endorsement from fellow out-of-stater Dan Quayle. But Sally Mauk from Montana Public Radio said, “I’m not sure how much, if any, boost that gives Mr. Downing…”
The two both own property in Montana’s elite ski resort – just like Downing, Quayle likes to visit the Yellowstone Club. As Chuck Johnson noted, “[i]t’s important to point out that they’re neighbors in the subdivision known as The Yellowstone Club further up the hill from Big Sky. And it’s, of course, a pretty posh subdivision where there are especially high fees to join, and you know, million dollar houses.”
This isn’t exactly helpful for Downing, who claimed tax breaks on his primary home in California as recently as last year and is headed to a jury trial for multiple misdemeanors for purchasing Montana hunting licenses as a non-resident.
