The letter, written to his sister after the 2012 elections, was produced to the local Billings Gazette by county attorney Scott Twito after a public information request was made to search Max Lenington’s government e-mails. The requests were made after a pair of Lenington’s plagiarized letters-one which was titled, “Why I hate Barack and Michelle Obama”–were published by the Billings Gazette. Although entire sentences are written nearly verbatim to columnist Mychael Massie’s piece called, “Why I dislike the Obama’s,” Lenington denies any plagiarism violations.
In Lenington’s e-mail he sent to his sister using his government account, he wrote, “It still baffles me how (Obama) got elected. It must mean there are more lesbians, queers, Indians, Mexicans and [n***ers] than the rest of us!”
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, American Indian and Alaska Natives comprise 6.5 percent of the Montana population that includes seven Indian reservations. Montana Indians are currently in a lawsuit against the state aiming to give them satellite voting offices in rural Montana where some of the most heavily populated centers of the reservations still have to travel over 120 miles to vote.
