A new report details how Jon Tester broke his campaign promise and hid his public schedule from his constituents during important debates over impeachment, the massive COVID package, and key controversial Biden nominees.
According to the report: “Tester’s public schedule was archived nearly a dozen times between February 1 and April 19, only showing Tester’s schedule during the last week in January, according to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”
This means during key congressional debates over impeachment, the wasteful Democrat-passed COVID relief package, and controversial Biden Administration nominees like Neera Tanden or Xavier Becerra, Tester’s constituents had no idea who he was meeting with to inform his decisions.
Tester has long bragged about transparency, first making the promise to upload his public schedule during his first Senate campaign in 2006. During Tester’s most recent re-election campaign in 2018, his office highlighted the pledge multiple times (Ex. 1, Ex. 2). Unfortunately for Tester’s constituents, it appears Tester is only interested in adhering to his campaign promise when he’s running for re-election.
