2008 Elections

Controversy arose late in the 2008 elections as the Billings Gazette reported Montana Democrats as breaking campaign disclosure laws. A report came out identifying democrats as calling voters anonymously to attack the republican candidate Jack Sands. Jack Sands went on to lose the election largely because of these illegal campaign activities.
