You could have an original Gov. Schweitzer Veto Board in your office.
A Montana non-profit is auctioning one of the only remaining veto boards created by Montana Gov.Brian Schweitzer when he vetoed a record number of TEA Party, frivolous, and unconstitutional bills during the 2011 legislative session.
Indeed, the TEA Partiers' dreams of legislative glory ended in a blaze of smoke and fire on the steps of the Montana Capitol as the Governor pulled out his branding iron and burned a giant VETO onto a pile of Tea Party bills.
The Governor has given one of these rare plaques to Rachel Maddow; Nancy Keenan, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America; and Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood of America. Now, you can bid on e-Bay to own one for yourself. The Pro-Choice Montana website has the details. If you win, Gov. Schweitzer will write you a personal message on the historic veto plaque. There is ONLY ONE DAY LEFT to bid.
Here's the Rachal Maddow clip of the event.
Says Maddow " this is so much better than politics has a right to be." Maddow has the board in her office, and so could you.
The bills Schweitzer vetoed were classic GOP crap, including: a voter suppression bill, which tried to make it harder for people register to vote; a bill to permit the use of cyanide by large gold mining companies (companies that funded many of the GOP legislators campaigns); a bill to give sheriffs authority over the federal government in terror investigations; and a bill to overturn a voter-approved initiative to allow seriously ill patients to use marijuana legally.
