Stanford and Dartmouth pay Montana $13k settling 2014 election fiasco

Montana’s campaign regulator has reached a settlement with two elite universities whose professors caught grief for experimenting with Montana voters in 2014.

In it Stanford and Dartmouth universities agreed to pay the state a combined $13,599.

The cash and a previous apology from the universities’ presidents — mailed to all Montana voters at a cost of $50,000 — prevents Montana’s commissioner of political practices from pursuing a lawsuit against the universities after they were found to have wrongfully conducted a turnout experiment on Montana voters.
