HELENA, Mont. – As the movement to ‘defund the police’ becomes mainstream, and as reports emerge about attacks against Montana’s law enforcement officers and their families, Democratic candidate for Attorney General Raph Graybill continues to remain silent.
The Montana Republican Party released the following statement in response:
“As a candidate for the top law enforcement officer position in Montana, it is inexplicable that Raph Graybill refuses to condemn attacks against Montana’s law enforcement professionals,” said Executive Director Spenser Merwin. “Graybill’s silence is a slap in the face to the Montanans that protect and serve our communities every single day, and anything short of a full condemnation of these attacks is an affront to the safety and wellbeing of the law enforcement professionals whom he hopes to oversee.”
This isn’t the first issue that Graybill has skirted to appease the far-left.
Earlier this month, Graybill refused to condemn fellow liberal – Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey – for her comments urging the burning of America.
In sharp contrast, Republican candidate for Attorney General Austin Knudsen continues to express his strong support for Montana’s local, state, tribal and federal law enforcement who he works with to protect and serve communities on a daily basis as a County Prosecutor. He has also publicly denounced the ‘defund the police’ movement as foolish.
The question remains – Will Graybill continue to cower in silence to appease liberal special interests at the expense of our law enforcement, or is he just anti-police?
