The Montana State Library Commission voted to cut all ties with the American Library Association on Tuesday, citing an inability to continue associating with an organization led by a self-described “Marxist”. At a meeting last month, the Montana State Library Commission reviewed a tweet from Emily Drabinski, the president-elect of the American Library Association, in which Drabinski described herself as a “Marxist lesbian”. “Our oath of office and resulting duty to the Constitution forbids association with an organization led by a Marxist,” the commission wrote in a letter to the American Library Association.
