Schweitzer Shows Off 'VETO' Branding Iron

Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) "has long been known for his showmanship and creative stunts" and now added "another prop to his arsenal of political gimmicks -- a branding iron bearing the word VETO," the Great Falls Tribune reports.

"Last month, the governor registered the VETO brand with the Montana Department of Livestock, for which he paid $100. The official brand certificate sits in a frame on a table in Schweitzer's office -- right next to the ornamental steel branding iron."
