Gianforte Wins Montana Election One Night After Being Charged with Assault

Republican Greg Gianforte has won Montana’s sole House district in a special election Thursday, keeping a seat in Republican hands despite facing assault charges for attacking a reporter who’d asked him about the GOP’s health-care bill.

In his victory speech, Gianforte admitted to the attack and apologized for it.

“I shouldn’t have treated that reporter that way,” he told supporters at his rally here.

According to the Washington Post, some in the crowd laughed at the mention of the incident. “I made a mistake,” said Gianforte.

“Not in our minds!” yelled a supporter.

  1. I'd never heard of this guy before the assault incident, but did some research on him. his Twitter account shows him pictured repeatedly with VP pence and Donald trump jr., who both wholeheartedly endorsed him. He is a very successful billionaire who has said that since Noah in the bible did never retire and worked until he was 600, Americans shouldn't need to retire either. You must check out this this Wikipedia page, lol.
