Quote for the Day…
The biggest wall you have to climb is the one you build in your mind. – Roy T. Bennett
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Election Crimes
- Mitch McConnell
- The Western Word Poll
The Montana Free Press (MTFP) reported earlier this week that Montana Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen’s office announced two incidents of alleged election crime stemming from a November 2021 municipal election in Dodson, misstating multiple key details in the process.
After reading the report, it looks like Jacobsen’s office could use some help in the communications department, not to mention help in dealing with facts.
It was reported that Grace O. Albia and Jannet Benitez Zeta have been charged with deceptive election practices for allegedly falsifying their voter registration forms in October 2021 by declaring they were U.S. citizens. They supposedly voted in the November 2021 municipal election.
One of the races, if you can believe the Montana Secretary of State’s office, was decided by only two votes.
I am watching closely for former President Donald Trump to comment about how he lost the election due to voter fraud in Dodson, Montana.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed Tuesday. The Hill reports:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) broke with the RNC over a resolution last week describing the Jan. 6 attack as “legitimate political discourse” and criticized the decision to censure GOP Reps. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Liz Cheney (Wyo.). “It was a violent insurrection with the purpose of trying to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election. … That’s what it was,” McConnell said.
If the Republicans gain control of the House and the Senate as most people expect, look for more fighting. They can’t help it.
