Senator Tester: Montanans Shouldn’t Believe an Ad That Bails Out on the Truth

Senator Tester (D-MT) has already spoken out against recent misleading ads about financial reform and the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, and now he’s followed up his previous interview with a letter to the “Committee for Truth and Politics”.  Here are some excerpts from the accompanying press statement:

Senator Jon Tester today called on a secretive organization responsible for misleading TV ads in Montana to reveal who they are and where their funding comes from.

The well-funded organization, called the “Committee for Truth in Politics,” is airing the TV ads across Montana, encouraging viewers to contact Tester about a bank bailout that doesn’t even exist.

“As you well know, this TV ad is flat out false,” Tester wrote in a letter to the only two people reported to be involved with the group.  “Out-of-state, secretive organizations that spread fear and confusion have no place in a state like Montana.”

The statement goes on to say:

“Our economy almost collapsed a year and a half ago because there were no referees on Wall Street,” Tester wrote.  “Montana’s Main Street small business owners and families should never have to pay the price of greed on Wall Street.”

He ends his letter by writing “Montanans shouldn’t believe an ad that bails out on the truth.”
