We love it when the state shows its naked, true self. Such is the case in the story of a Montana House Candidate who body-slammed an uppity journalist from the Guardian. From our perspective, it’s a win-win.
Last night we wrote about Montana’s Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte who reportedly “body slammed” Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs during an interview after being pressed for his opinion on the CBO healthcare score. Gianforte is the Republican candidate in today’s special election for Montana’s open U.S. House seat…but we’re sure it’s just a coincidence that this happened one day before the election.
Not surprisingly, we learn this morning that Gianforte has been officially slapped with a “misdemeanor assault” charge by the Gallatin County Sheriff’s office which carries with it a maximum fine of up to $500 and/or 6 months in jail if convicted.
