Helena – Last week, news broke that East Coast developer Matt Rosendale has beenscrubbing mention of his claim to be a rancher from his campaign materials and social media – but only after he was exposed for being all hat and (literally) no cattle.
While being a rancher was something Rosendale used to boast about, it appears he is now embarrassed that Montanans have found out his claims are phony and is perhaps hoping they will forget that he was misleading them in the first place.
Rosendale’s record of voting against Montanans is not as easy to scrub away – but that hasn’t kept him from trying.
What else is Rosendale trying to scrub from the record?
- Rosendale has refused to discuss his votes against our veterans, which include voting multiple times against funding for the Butte veterans home, voting to slash funding for the Columbia Falls veterans home, voting against providing scholarships to Purple Heart recipients, and voting against creating a home loan program for Gold Star families and veterans buying their first home.
- Rosendale has also tried to hide his anti-public lands record, including his advocacy for transferring public lands to the state and using his position on the Land Board to block easements.
- Maybe Rosendale’s most blatant scrub attempt of all is his claim that he will protect Montanans with pre-existing conditions, when “the policies he supports do opposite of what he promised.”
And then, of course, there’s Rosendale’s unfortunate TV ad mistaking Article II of the Constitution with the Second Amendment, which Rosendale was forced to scrub and replace lest people realize he didn’t actually know the difference.
