Lacking any coherent policy vision or tangible administrative successes as Secretary Stapleton’s chief of staff, Christi Jacobsen accused her opponent Bryce Bennett of being “anti-American,” demonstrating that she has little interest in engaging on any of the actual issues that the Secretary of State deals with.
Jacobsen’s desperation likely stems from her efforts to distract from her disgraceful record in the current Secretary of State’s office. For those who have forgotten, the Billings Gazette Editorial Board laid it out nicely:
There was the issue of the nonexistent voter fraud that Stapleton referred to in public, then blamed the media for reporting. There was the problem with the unauthorized expense to the state for a personal “big truck” he used to commute to work. There was the attempt to declare a bill vetoed by the governor as the law of the land, a move a judge found to be “without constitutional or statutory support.” There was the botched voter guide and rush-job $265,000 correction, commissioned from a political ally’s print shop without bid. And there was the fine for using resources from the Secretary of State’s Office to announce his campaign for governor — a campaign he later abandoned to run instead for Montana’s House seat when that position looked more easily attainable.
