Thank you Kim Barker and ProPublica for shining a bright light on the political sewage that surrounded the 2012 election cycle. And thank you Billings Outpost for printing it here in Montana [Jan. 3]. Politics and money bring out the worst in people. It has always been so, and it always will be.
Although the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United only made things worse, nearly two centuries of legislation in the U.S. has not changed human nature. The only way to blunt the corrosive effects of crony capitalism is to keep shining a light on it, as you have done and need continually to do.
