ATP not surprised Bullock found guilty of breaking campaign finance laws

BOZEMAN — American Tradition Partnership is not surprised Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock was found guilty Thursday of breaking state campaign finance laws regarding 11 illegal campaign checks totaling $15,472.15.

“Steve Bullock has repeatedly thrown false accusations at American Tradition Partnership and anyone else who questions his agenda,” said ATP Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “Once again we find out the only person breaking the law is Steve Bullock himself.”

“This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Montana citizens have filed over a dozen other documented cases of Bullock pocketing illegal PAC and corporate contributions,” said Ferguson.  “And there will be new documented revelations of wrongdoing and corruption against Bullock coming out as we verify the information.”

The decision was issued by Deputy Commissioner of Political Practices Jay Dufrechou, a former donor to Bullock.

American Tradition Partnership, through its Montana Statesman newspaper, is offering cash rewards for tips leading to the arrest.  Citizens can forward information to editor@montanastatesman.com or 219-7287.

Since its founding in Montana, by Montanans, in 2007, ATP has held public officials accountable for corruption and cozy ties to job-killing environmentalists.  The group has never been found guilty of wrongdoing, which is more than can be said for Steve Bullock.
