Let’s be civil.
The Flathead Beacon encourages vigorous discussion and lively debate, but we will delete comments that attack other readers, make accusations we can’t verify, stray too far off topic, criticize local businesses (call them if you have a problem), accuse someone of a crime, use profanity or are simply judged to be in bad taste. We don’t always have someone moderating comments, so we ask for your help: If you see a comment that violates these ground rules, or you simply deem it offensive, please e-mail webmaster [at]

What Reichner fails to acnowledge is that Western Tradition Partnership became American
Tradition Partnership and has since all but collapsed due to well documentted allogations that
they violated the law.  His proposal to fight fire with fire seems juvenile at best.  It is
clearly against the what most Montanans want.

ATP is only one of many dark money groups that were involved in our elections last year.  It is naive to
think just because one group collapsed that we don’t have to deal with this.  The public needs the
candidates to have control of these campaigns, not wealthy individuals set on buying our legislature,
executive and judiciary.  Maybe you need to spend some time digging through those news reports,
emails, and finance disclosures, or lack thereof.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
