We don’t condone violence in any way, shape or form, but this story is an interesting look at just how much the American people don’t care about the liberal media.
According to the Daily Caller, Montana Rep. Greg Gianforte raked in $116,000 in campaign donations on the day of his election, just hours AFTER he assaulted a Guardian reporter during an interview the night before.
Yes, you read that right. This man literally body-slammed a liberal reporter…and he STILL bagged over $100k in donations.
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
“Many expected Gianforte, who was running to fill Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s vacant house seat in a May 25 special election, to lose after he grabbed Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs by the neck and threw him to the ground.
Instead, Gianforte won the election by a six percent margin and raised more than $100,000 on election day, according to campaign disclosures first reported by The Guardian.
The election day donations totaled more than the previous five days of fundraising combined, a rare feat in political fundraising since a campaign can’t do much with donations on the day of the election
Gianforte has since apologized to Jacobs, and offered to donate $50,000 to the Committee to Protect Journalists to settle any civil claims. Gianforte also pled guilty to assault charges, and was sentenced to community service, fined $385 and ordered to take anger management classes.”
