"I never got past the fact that it was so few people giving so much money in a Supreme Court race in Montana," Motl told the AP. "To have this amount of money spent in a judicial race is pretty stunning."
The biggest checks came from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Charles Schwab of Charles Schwab Corp., each of whom gave $200,000. James Cox Kennedy, the head of Atlanta-based Cox Enterprises, donated $100,000.
And yet we have another example how 'dark money' and the Citizen's United ruling are having undue influence of our elections. Bad for Montana, bad for our country.
