Montana’s Democratic party caused a stir in courts by accusing the Green party of not having enough ‘valid’ signatures’ to participate in the midterm electionsDemocratsts claimed that the Green party candidates were supported by out of State Republican ‘dark money’ groups.

A judge ruled in favor of the Democrat’s claim and interestingly enough, that ruling reportedly gives the left moving forward into November’s elections. Imagine that…

According to The Daily Caller, A Montana judge ordered election officials to remove the Green Party off the ballot, giving the Democratic candidate a boost in the 2018 midterm elections.

Helena District Court Judge James Reynolds’ decision to remove Green Party candidate Steve Kelly off the ballot comes after Montana Democrats accused the party of not obtaining signatures the right way, according to a Monday report by The Associated Press. Accusations included signatures not matching the registered voters, incomplete entries, and the party not disclosing all of its financial activities.

The Montana Democrats argued that the Green Party failed to submit 5,000 signatures from at least 34 state House districts in order to qualify for the midterms. The Green Party received enough signatures, but only from 30 state House districts.

As Reported By Flathead Beacon:

In Monday’s order, Reynolds said he found signatures invalid for several reasons, from being submitted by a person who didn’t collect them to mismatched signatures and entries lacking the required information.

That left the Green Party without enough signatures in eight House districts.

“Today’s ruling is a win for Montanans against the tactics of out-of-state, Republican dark money groups that are blatantly trying to interfere in Montana’s democracy,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of Montana Democrats.

Democrats argued that an out-of-state political consulting firm was involved in gathering signatures to certify the Green Party for the ballot, but that activity was not reported to the state Commissioner of Political Practices as required by state campaign finance laws.
