The author of a new book asserts that Democratic Montana Senator Jon Tester urinated in front of him in a pea field several years ago and made no apparent effort to conceal himself.
On June 6, journalist Ben Terris released the book “The Big Break: The Gamblers, Party Animals, and True Believers Trying to Win in Washington While America Loses Its Mind.”
The book is described as a “fascinating investigation into the real-life inner workings of a post-Trump American government” that uncovers “the odd and eccentric personalities grappling for their own bit of power in D.C.”
The title of this 352-page thorough dive into Washington politics was inspired by the assertion in the book that former President Donald Trump’s 2017 arrival in Washington marked a significant change in the city’s operation.
Fox News announced Terris told a story about a time he spent with Tester on his Montana property many years ago.
Terris wrote, “I was on assignment in Montana writing a profile of Jon Tester when the flat-topped, seven-fingered senator (who was also a working farmer) suddenly started relieving himself in an organic pea field next to his tractor without covering himself up.”
Terris claimed he was instructed not to include his observation of Tester discharging himself in his report.
“Later, a press aide (who, coincidentally, also only had seven fingers) popped out of a Subaru and posed to me a question as old as the federal government itself: ‘Can the senator’s penis please be off the record?’”
As a child, Tester lost three digits on his left hand in an accident involving a meat grinder, according to Politico.
Roll Call previously reported that the senator’s closest aide, Luke Jackson, is missing the same three digits on the same hand. The aide was not identified.
The allegation that Tester exposed his genitalia to a reporter comes as he faces an opponent in his fourth bid for re-election.
Tim Sheehy, a businessman and former Navy SEAL, entered the GOP primary on Tuesday and could confront Tester in the fall.

I'm running for U.S. Senate to bring leadership back to Washington and protect Montana.

The senator is regarded as vulnerable and won re-election in 2018 by a margin of less than 18,000 ballots.
