BILLINGS — A lawsuit filed by a Montana musician-turned-U.S. House candidate said significant health problems prevented him from working in 2011.
However, The Billings Gazette reports Rob Quist’s archived website and news coverage indicates he performed at least 35 times that year.
Quist and his wife sued a bank and a title company in December 2014 arguing the companies wouldn’t help them fix issues with the title to their property, preventing them from subdividing and selling part of it. The lawsuit said lack of income contributed to their inability to make mortgage payments.
Campaign spokeswoman Tina Olechowski said the amount of time Quist worked that year was not enough to cover the catastrophic medical bills he faced.
Quist, a Democrat, is seeking the U.S. House seat vacated by now-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, along with Republican Greg Gianforte and Libertarian Mark Wicks.
