According to the Associated Press, Gianforte’s campaign sent a fundraiser invitation that explicitly asked for donations to the Montana First Action PAC, to “directly benefi[t] Greg’s Governor campaign.” A subsequent campaign finance complaint alleges that the invitation amounted to illegal coordination with the PAC, as a workaround to Montana’s strict contribution limits.
Greg Gianforte is no stranger to legal trouble. After violently attacking a reporter, Gianforte lied to the police and pleaded guilty to assault. This latest allegation may just be the latest addition to Gianforte’s infamous rap sheet.
“Greg Gianforte, a convicted criminal who has shown no remorse for lying to the police, clearly thinks he’s above the law,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Gianforte should take his shady electioneering tricks back to New Jersey, where they belong.”
