Montana Governor's Race - District Ct Judge stops Rick Hill (R Idiot) from using $500K Illegal Contr
I wanted to give you an important update this evening – a District Court judge has issued a restraining order, preventing Congressman Hill from spending any more of the illegal funds he’s taken and canceling any advertisements he already placed with those dollars. Here’s what the newspapers are saying:
Judge: Governor candidate Hill must stop spending excess donation
further ordered that Hill and his campaign “be required to stop any agents, such as media buyers to whom these funds in whole or in part have been transferred, from proceeding to purchase any media time with these funds or otherwise benefit the Hill campaign through the use of the funds.”
“Insofar as advertisements have been purchased with these funds and are set to air immediately, they must be canceled,” Seeley ordered.
Read the whole story online.
I know I don’t need to tell you – this is HUGE news. Our team will be in court on Monday arguing that, to preserve the integrity of our elections, the entirety of this illegal contribution needs to be returned.

Thanks for all that you do.
You’ve seen the newspaper stories about Congressman Hill’s illegal, half-a-million dollar contribution - even though the courts have said that our limits are still in effect:
“…dumped $500,000 into Rick Hill's campaign.”
“It looks as if they’re trying to buy the election.”
Well with your help, we’re fighting back. We’re releasing a new ad this morning – and I wanted you to be the first to see it:
Congressman Hill wants to put our elections up for sale. But our grassroots support won’t let that happen.
You can make sure that more people can see this ad by forwarding it to your friends, sharing on Facebook and Twitter and contributing whatever you can afford – even $25 or $15.
As Governor, Steve will never stop fighting to make sure our elections are decided by Montanans, not out-of-state corporations; because it’s our state, not theirs.
13 days left!
Friends of Steve Bullock
