Soros/SEIU-Funded Group Targets GOP Senate Candidate

A group funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros is targeting Republican Senate candidate Denny Rehberg in Montana, reports.

On Monday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington – CREW for short – asked the Flathead County sheriff’s office to disclose documents pertaining to a 2009 Flathead Lake boat crash that injured Rehberg and a handful of others. …

CREW alleged in the statement released Monday that [State Sen. Greg] Barkus and Rehberg essentially lied to police investigators about why the boat ended up on the rocky bank of Flathead Lake. "Further, it seems Sen. Barkus and Rep. Rehberg may not have been honest when questioned by investigators," CREW executive director Melanie Sloan wrote. …

CREW operates as a nonprofit, but refuses to reveal its donors. The group has acknowledged, however, it has received at least $100,000 from mega-liberal George Soros, the left’s sugar daddy.

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has also funded the group in the past. SEIU is currently backing Rehberg’s opponent, incumbent Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.) through the outside group Patriotic Majority.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) recently moved its "primary banking relationship" from Bank of America to Amalgamated Bank, which is owned by the SEIU.
