This is becoming a thing for Tea Partiers – creating fake organizations to endorse them. It has happened before.  Tea Party candidate and Montana Family Foundation lobbyist Debra Lamm applied the same tactic but used a fake address.

If no one else will endorse you, just endorse yourself and people will think you’re super-popular.

The Cowgirl blog reports:

Lamm has published an ad in May 15th edition of The Livingston Enterprise touting that the local GOP central committee has endorsed her for election in House District 60. This is hilarious for two reasons.

1. Ms. Lamm herself is the GOP committee chair and her husband Joe is the treasurer.

2. Ms. Lamm resides in HD59 not HD60. In the primary, she should be running against Alan Redfield not Kevin Fochs.

That’s why it interesting to note that Ms. Lamm’s physical address is 106 Morgan Trail, Emigrant MT 59027, not Livingston MT 59047. Her physical address is conspicuously absent from the current Form C-1 she has on file with the Commissioner of Political Practices. You can look up her C-1 for 2012 and 2014 to compare. For some reason she also filed the wrong zip code with the Billings Gazette in 2012. One hopes she isn’t trying to deceive voters by making it appear that she lives in the district she’s running for, because she does not live in the district.

(Yes, this is the same lobbyist who the Montana Family Foundation hired to rant against public school classrooms in the Montana legislature. Perhaps honesty and transparency aren’t among the so-called “family values” this group claims to espouse.)

Maybe she could pay some actors to hang out with her so she won’t look so alone.

    What is it with Montana? This kind of thing and armed militia “patriots” driving all the way down to Utah and Nevada to wave their guns around and whine about how oppressed they are by the big bad FED’ruhl GUB’mint. Is it the polluted water from all that mining over the years? Isn’t Montana a taker state? Here’s some advice: no one in Utah or Nevada needs your tiny egos and big guns, so stay home and shoot road signs or whatever it is you do up there.

    I hear david letterman calls Montana home. This story could qualify as a “stupid human trick “

    Sometimes I wonder if these tea party types in Montana are just envious of all the attention that Texas and Florida get. They wanna put Montana in the spot-light.

    Candidate representing the tea party creates a fake organization — isn’t that redundant?

    Can’t candidates who blatantly deceive people in this manner just be thrown out of the election for simply being an exposed liar and a cheat? Crap like this is just unconscionable – will these T-people stop at nothing to forward their neo-con agenda? Idiots!
