  •  No Missoula debate for Morrison after article (3+ / 0-)

    The article is so damaging that Morrison is now chickening out on Friday's candidate forum in Missoula.

    Oh, and the story just hit the Billings Outpost:

    State Auditor John Morrison was the focus of this past week’s cover story in the Missoula Independent. “Why the Morrison Affair Matters” (www.missoulanews.com/News/) doesn’t dwell on his brief fling with the fiancée of a man later investigated by his office for securities fraud but concentrates on how the office did (or did not) pursue that investigation.

    Mr. Morrison can’t be pleased about seeing some legs on this story, especially since reporter John S. Adams went into great detail putting it in context of the David Tacke investigation. He interviewed former members of Morrison’s staff and investors in Tacke’s schemes and raises questions about why the investigation took so long and why the feds successfully prosecuted Tacke instead of the state.
