Rep. Art Wittich, R-Bozeman, testifies on the forth day of his corruption trial in Helena.

State representative Art Wittich took the stand Thursday in the civil trial against him for allegedly violating state campaign finance law. Wittich is being sued by Montana's Commissioner of Political Practices Jonathan Motl. Motl says Wittich failed to report thousands of dollars of campaign services that he received from a nation anti-unton group when he ran for state senate in 2010. Wittich says he did pay for the services, and denies any wrongdoing. We spoke with John S. Adams, editor-in-chief of Montana Free Press about Wittich's testimony on Thursday.

John S. Adams is the Editor-in-Chief of Montana Free Press.
