Yeah, be proud of the fact that you support misdemeanor assault and the man charged with the crime.


An assault is a criminal act of violence no matter who perpetrates it & who it is done to.

I'd have liked to have heard an actual answer by Gianforte to the reporter's question since he has been vague & skirting around his opinion of the new heath bill out of the House. Now that the CBO has scored the bill & shown it for what it is, I'd think that any voter would want to know how Gianforte feels about it now.

I voted for Greg several weeks ago. This does not make me want to change my vote.
In fact, after watching how some reporters conduct themselves, acting like they have some kind of immunity, IMO it is refreshing to see someone finally show one that he does NOT have any immunity at all!
Good for you, Greg. More people need to show those people that they are no better than anybody else.

"Those people"..?
Consider your words here Redraven & know that Greg is no better than anyone else either & will face the charges in court in June.
As the story continues to develop, it now appears according to the Fox tv crew from the local affiliate who witnessed the assault, the Gianforte campaign is lying & enabling the assault via their written response statement. The Fox tv crew has said that it did not occur as the campaign claimed & thus we can add brazen lying to the latest from the Gianforte campaign.
So Montanans; is assault & lying ok because it was done to "those people"? Do you know how twisted that sounds?

Gianforte will be elected Montana's congressman tonight, and that's fantastic because I really need another reason for being embarrassed to live here.

And now the big shocker: The Montana Republican Man-cave is carrying on with even more passionate support of the man they've carried such a hard-on for over the last two years. You're very sick people.

Once you understand just how hateful contemporary Montana conservatives are toward anyone who deviates from their cultural scriptures, then your question simply becomes rhetorical.

So, you are convinced that the Gianforte people are lying, and the fox news crew is telling the absolute truth, and nothing but the truth?
I wonder when the video will suddenly appear? Can it be that it is being hidden? Of course, it is quite possible that there is no video, and then it becomes "he said, he said".
Who is telling the truth?
I certainly do not know, I wasn't there.

This is beyond belief.
Did it ever occur to you that reporters ask the questions millions of us have?

In any case, assault is a crime. You don't have to like that fact but you and everybody else had better abide by it. Respect the laws of this country, from free press to free speech to not committing assault. And if those in governmental power are incapable of recognizing those basic essentials, then on we go, zooming down to the end of the slope this country has already been on for the last few months, and then God knows what chaos lies ahead.
What a disgrace.
