Gianforte After Winning House Seat: ‘I’m Sorry’ For Body-Slamming A Reporter

Greg Gianforte, a Republican congressional candidate in Montana’s special election, apologized during his victory speech for body-slamming reporter Ben Jacobs.

“I need to share something from my heart here,” Gianforte began his apology.

“When you make a mistake you have to own up to it,” he continued. “That’s the Montana way.”

The night before the special election, Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs tried to ask Gianforte about the CBO’s recent scoring of the House’s health care bill, and Gianforte responded by tackling and punching Jacobs. He was charged by police with misdemeanor assault.
