SNAPPED: Montana GOP Candidate Greg Gianforte beats up news reporter (audio)


The polls are open in Montana.  In a special election voters will choose the Democratic Candidate Rob Quist or Republican Candidate Greg Gianforte for Congress.

Last night, Gianforte attacked Ben Jacobs of The Guardian who went to a Bozeman Montana emergency room after he said he was “body-slammed” by the Republican candidate.

The question that made Gianforte snap?  Health Care -Congressional Budget Office’s report on the Republican health-care bill.

Within hours, the state largest newspapers in Missoula, Billings and Helena had rescinded their endorsements of Mr. Gianforte,  House Democrats quickly released a digital ad featuring the audio recording.

Gianforte, is being charged with misdemeanor assault.

Paul Ryan asked Gianforte to apologize.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .

  1. Apologize??? What kind of bs is that. In the event any of us thought there would be any sort of public outcry or outrage from the Republican Party, wait for it, yeah not gonna happen. The days of the Republican Party behaving with any sort of class are dead and cremated! R.I.P!!
