Today’s independent commentary deals with these people/issues:
- Asking for a Friend
- Montana AG Austin Knudsen
- 2021’s Safest States in America
- The Western Word Poll
ASKING FOR A FRIEND:
Here’s an interesting question sent to me by a reader…
If a Facebook page based in Montana is spending money for Facebook ads that are either for or against candidates, does the administrator of that Facebook page need to report the expenditures to the Commissioner of Political Practices (COPP)?
The ads this friend has seen are reposts of stories that are negative or positive depending on if they support or don’t support the candidate.
By the way and in case you were wondering, I do not advertise The Western Word Facebook page.
MONTANA AG AUSTIN KNUDSEN:
The Montana Free Press (MTFP) has a story posted that explains what will happen with the investigation of Republican Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen.

2021’S SAFEST STATES IN AMERICA:
The personal finance website WalletHub has released a report on 2021’s Safest States in America. Here is what they had to say:
With June being National Safety Month and 375,000 Americans having died from COVID-19 in 2020, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2021’s Safest States in America, as well as accompanying videos and expert commentary.
In order to determine the most secure states, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 55 key metrics. The data set ranges from the percentage of residents who are fully vaccinated to assaults per capita and the unemployment rate.
Montana was ranked as one of the least safe states coming in at #45. My birth state of Missouri was a little better, coming in at #42.

THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
The 2021 World Series started Tuesday night with the Atlanta Braves taking on the Houston Astros. All games will be televised on FOX. More information about the series can be found HERE.
This week’s poll question asks, “Which team will win the 2021 World Series?”
The results will be posted later this week.
