According to one very reliable source I know, poll watchers were physically threatened by groups of thugs after they saw and tried to intervene against election workers sifting through ballots on the Blackfeet rez, tossing out GOP votes. They left as instructed in fear of their safety.
The outcome was something like 4,000 to 100 in favor of Tester at one precinct.
This story made the rounds the week of the election. And, as I say, it was no joke but a commentary as business as usual on the rez. Now if such behavior was reported to law enforcement and no action taken based on instructions from Gov. Blowhard in a bolo tie . . .
In fairness, I must add I did not witness the allegations and only mention them because Schweitzer himself brings up the topic. To him of the huge face, it’s a joke. To me, and a lot of Montanans, he’s the joke.
If this story ever was investigated, we might have a new gov this election cycle.
If Tester was elected by fraudulent means done at the bullying tactics of Schweitzer then they both should share a cell.
