FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Starting in January – when the COVID-19 threat first became known – Greg Gianforte invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in various pandemic-related companies. Publicly, Gianforte downplayed the virus, but privately, Gianforte continued to invest, positioning himself to profit from the crisis, while public health officials warned of an unprecedented public health and economic emergency.
Gianforte’s shameless investments have been scrutinized by Democrats and Republicans alike. Even Republican Attorney General Tim Fox criticized Gianforte’s investments, accusing Gianforte of insider trading and exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic for his own benefit.
To make matters even worse, Greg Gianforte pledged to “put all his assets in a blind trust to avoid any conflict of interest.” That turned out to be a lie.
“While Mike Cooney has been leading Montana through a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, Greg Gianforte was investing millions of dollars in pandemic-related stock,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “Instead of a crisis, Greg Gianforte viewed the COVID crisis as just another investment opportunity. After all, Gianforte is only out for himself, never Montanans.”
