Schweitzer’s Mormanism Statements Draw Fire

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Governor Schweitzer told reporter Ben Jacobs that Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney would have difficulty convincing female voters because of where Mitt’s father was born.  Schweitzer placed the focus on gender by saying that women are “not great fans of polygamy, 86 percent were not great fans of polygamy. I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico.”

The Obama campaign quickly responded through spokesperson Lis Smith who said that “Attacking a candidate’s religion is out of bounds, and our campaign will not engage in it, and we don’t think others should either.”

Now Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Miller is accusing Schweitzer of taking on a “new political role as an attack dog for the Obama administration.” In a press statement, Miller added that Schweitzer had reached a “new low” by attacking Romney’s faith. KGVO spoke with Miller about the issue and here’s what he had to say.
