On May 26, 2017 CNN reported that Republican billionaire Greg Gianforte was elected to Congress despite allegedly body slamming The Guardian’s political reporter Ben Jacobs. The reporter was asking him about the GOP healthcare bill. A Fox News team witnessed the attack. According to Eric Whitney of Montana Public Radio, Jacobs was injured and contacted the police. The Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin, who had previously donated $250 to Gianforte’s congressional campaign, has charged Gianforte with misdemeanor assault and could be sent to jail for six months.
