Tracy Stone-Manning is a longtime environmental activist and Democrat party operative. She started with EarthFirst back in the 1990s and is tied to virtually every out of state funded, dark money environmental outfit in Montana. She’s also President Biden’s nominee to head up the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Her controversial nomination is now facing serious ethics questions which could very likely sink her BLM nomination.
While it may have largely been ignored by the media in Montana, Stone-Manning is facing serious questions from national news outlets about a personal loan she received while serving as Democrat Senator Jon Tester’s (D-MT) state director.
According to The Washington Times, “Ms. Stone-Manning was quizzed about a personal loan of between $50,000 and $100,000 that she obtained from a friend in 2008 at 6% interest, about half the market rate at the time.”
At the hearing, Stone-Manning claimed the loan came from a “friend,” who also happens to be a very wealthy Democrat donor from Missoula, and who also got some benefits from state government while Tracy Stone-Manning held senior positions.
