New Commissioner of Political Practices Appointed
On Wednesday, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock appointed Jeff Mangan, a former Democratic state legislator, to a six-year term as the next Commissioner of Political Practices.
Mangan will replace outgoing Commissioner Jonathon Motl whose tenure was riddled by allegations of disproportionately targeting and investigating Republican candidate campaign violations.
Mangan will be the fifth Commissioner appointed this decade and the first confirmed to a full six-year term. A confirmation vote by the Senate is expected on Thursday or Friday.
