Gianforte Wins By A Neck

The beatings will continue until the press quits writing unfavorable stories about wingnuts.

The big news is that the Bozeman Bopper won his election to be Montana’s sole representative in Congress. But he finally apologized for strangling and body-slamming reporter Ben Jacobs, you know, after he won the race:

“When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it. That’s the Montana way,” Gianforte said. “Last night I made a mistake and I took an action that I can’t take back. I’m not proud of what happened. I should not have responded in the way that I did and for that I am sorry.”

“I should not have treated that reporter that way and for that I am sorry Mr. Ben Jacobs,” he added. Gianforte, however, did not address his campaign’s contradictory statement released last night.

Makes you wonder what he would have said if he lost. I’m sure he had another statement prepared for that contingency, too.

    I don’t think it was a matter of winning or losing, but more a matter of whether the witnesses and/or the sheriff (who donated a goodly sum to Gianforte’s campaign) were willing to lie on his behalf. I believe that first response of his shows that he fully expected that they would and this current apology shows that in the end they did not. He’s a Republican so, as always, he’s not really sorry for what he did he’s just sorry he couldn’t cover it up.

  3. if the fellow acknowledges and apologizes for the lie before i will believe he really repents but if he doesn’t then i think he’s still lying – maybe i’m you think i am too harsh and suspicious but if you really knew me you would realize how kind i am and also how modest – in fact i am one of the kindest and most modest people i know

  4. What he’s NOT sorry for, though, is that the violence-by-proxy got his supporters all riled up -IYKWIMAITYD- so he raked in over $100 large overnight./..

    “COngressman, you have apologized for your actions. Does that mean you will plead guilty to the misdemeanor charges filed against you?”

    I’ll pay a dollar to the reporter who asks that.

    Wishful thinking dep’t: He pleads guilty and is sentenced to the max: $500 + 6 months in the pokey.
