Montana Democrat Sen. John Walsh Hit With Sex-harassment Charges in New Ad

A woman and major in the Army Reserve who served under Montana Democrat Sen. John Walsh, Cindy Neely, pulls no punches in a new hard-hitting ad for Walsh’s Republican challenger Steve Daines. Neely claims that Walsh seemed to have had a pattern of mistreating women.

“I served our country in Iraq, then in the Montana National Guard under John Walsh. I feel I owe it to every woman in Montana to speak out. Under John Walsh, women like me were mistreated. There are pending lawsuits charging harassment, and I experienced discrimination personally. John Walsh looked the other way to protect his own career, and women suffered. John Walsh is not fit for office.”

That ad caused Walsh’s campaign to respond with an ad of their own featuring former Montana National Guard Sgt. Kelly Cogley Gallinger. Walsh also released this document presented as a fact check.

“Congressman Daines is attacking John Walsh’s decorated 33-year record — it’s nothing more than a lie. I served with John.  He doesn’t tolerate misconduct, period. … Congressman Daines, Montanans, and John Walsh, deserve better than your false ads.”

Democrats may be beginning to learn that so called war on women rhetoric can cut both ways.
