Gianforte sends ‘cease and desist’ letter to TV stations

Outlaw Partners



BOZEMAN (AP) – An attorney for Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte has sent letters to television stations urging them to stop airing an attack ad against him.

The cease and desist letter from Anita Milanovich says the ad by Good Jobs Montana PAC is “false and misleading” and stations should refuse to air it.

Milanovich writes the ad contains false claims, such as Gianforte is a “millionaire from New Jersey” and that he “sued to eliminate a popular public access spot.”

Gianforte is from California and grew up in Pennsylvania. He filed a lawsuit against the state in 2009 over a dispute about an easement next to his property, but resolved the issue out of court.

The Montana Broadcasters Association is counseling television stations to consult their attorneys about whether to continue airing the ads.
