Re: “Inside Gianforte’s election night party, or: How Montana Republicans learned to stop worrying and love the ‘body slam’

Hi Raymond,

I wrote this story. Steve Bullock won Big Horn County last fall with 2,724 votes to Gianforte's 1,497. Quist won Big Horn County with 1,348 votes to Gianforte's 1,183.

Best,
Derek

Well hou information is wrong or you are telling the public a lie.
BigHorn county changed from red to blue reprint a retraction.

Re: “House race takes its most bizarre turn yet with Gianforte’s alleged assault of reporter

If Jacobs had grabbed Gianforte by the neck, body-slammed Greg to the floor, and started punching him, while saying this is the second time you butted in, do you think the Gallitan Sheriff would have charged Jacobs with misdemeanor assault or a felony? I would bet the charge would be a felony.
And, why did Gianforte run away before he could be questioned by the detectives, and reportedly state "...the police could talk with his attorney." When have the police allowed the perpetrator of a crime to run away on any other case.

Why is this article necessary? The absurdity of election night was already felt acutely. This is pouring salt into the wound of what your readership already knows about voters in the state of MT. The worst part of this scenario is Gianforte's incredible lying statement following the assault despite witness accounts. He never apologized (or was held accountable) about blatantly lying, victim shaming, and making an enemy of the press. He was such a flawed candidate to begin with. How can this man be trusted to make an OATH. He is not deserving to be a U.S. House Representative. Does his reasoning "I am sick and tired of you" allow me to Body Slam HIM? Because I am sick and tired of him and what he represents and would love to body slam him disarming him of his gun and wallet leaving him to face the consequences of his cowardice.

No one is talking about the other audio that the Gianforte campaign released, in a bizarrely celebratory swipe at supporters and detractors alike- https://s4gband.bandcamp.com/track/everybody-hates-greg-single

With any luck Trump will hire Gianforte to be press secretary and get him to return to where he came. Get the special election going again. Alas, a tyrantosuarus does live amongst us and now represents our great state.

16--603

Montana election laws apply to congressional delegations. Montana is one of the only states to allow this. The criteria are narrow, but a clever person could make a case for most. Change the charges from simple assault, a demeanor (sp?) to felony assault, and boom..there you go.

(1) Any person holding a public office of the state or any of its political subdivisions, either by election or appointment, is subject to recall from office.

(2) A public officer holding an elective office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the elective officer's successor. A public officer holding an appointive office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the successor or successors of the elective officer or officers who have the authority to appoint a person to that position.

(3) Physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of the oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of a felony offense enumerated in Title 45 are the only grounds for recall. A person may not be recalled for performing a mandatory duty of the office that the person holds or for not performing any act that, if performed, would subject the person to prosecution for official misconduct. History: En. Sec. 2, I.M. No. 73, approved November 2, 1976; amd. Sec. 3, Ch. 364, L. 1977; R.C.M. 1947, 59-612; amd. Sec. 1, Ch. 398, L. 1979; amd. Sec. 109, Ch. 61, L. 2007.

Montana election laws apply to congressional delegations.

Carpetbagger, unqualified in every way, and a common thug to boot.
