Montana Bill Offers Right To Vote To Poor Oppressed Corporations

Rep. Steve Lavin, a longtime ALEC supporter, has introduced a bill that would allow corporations to vote.

Editor's note: Welcome to new C&L contributor Juanita Jean, who covers the crazy over at Juanita Jean's, The World's Most Dangerous Beauty Salon Inc.

Montana, maybe the sky is too big or something, but crazy grows wild and freely up there. Maybe it’s dripping down from Canada, in French. I dunno. But it’s crazy.

Steve Lavin, sticking up for poor little corporations!
Lavin: Looks the RoleMontana Rep. Steve Lavin has introduced HB485, subtitled “Mitt Romney on Steroids and Fertilizer.” Okay, okay, the bill is real but I just made up the subtitle.

Here ya go –

A BILL FOR AN ACT ENTITLED: “AN ACT REVISING ELIGIBILITY TO VOTE IN MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS AND TO FILE FOR CANDIDACY FOR MUNICIPAL ELECTED OFFICE; ALLOWING A QUALIFIED NONRESIDENT PROPERTY OWNER OR DESIGNEE OF AN ENTITY TO VOTE IN MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS AND TO FILE FOR CANDIDACY FOR MUNICIPAL ELECTED OFFICE; AND AMENDING SECTIONS 7-1-4121, 7-4-4104, 7-4-4301, AND 7-4-4401, MCA.”

Sweet Mother of Landowners, that means that corporations can vote. Maybe they can even run for office. Wouldn’t that be cool? Hey, my friend, are you voting for WalMart or Kodak?

But don’t stop there. Lavine is skipping ladder rungs on the Tower of Nuts. He wants to allow people to salvage roadkill.

Now at first glance that sounds dandy, until you go out to dinner. Yeah, you guessed it – roadkill deer meat in a restaurant.

You know, maybe Republicans are on to something with this smaller government thing. Maybe they should leave. That would be a great first step.
