Two-term Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock, above, is polling 47-47 against GOP incumbent

By Holly K. Michels of Billings Gazette

(Original headline: 'State GOP spent $100k to qualify Montana Green Party for the ballot.' ).

A mystery of the 2020 election was solved Tuesday as it became clear the Montana Republican Party paid for an effort to qualify the Montana Green Party for the ballot this election.

The Montana Green Party has made clear it did not do any work to qualify and had not planned to run any candidates.

By March 6, the secretary of state qualified the Greens. That's even with a new state law requiring anyone spending more than $500 to qualify a minor party to register.

Green Party candidates can be seen as drawing votes away from Democrats.

The Montana secretary of state broke the law and should be prosecuted for election fraud.
