"""BREAKING: Lifelong Democrat Operative at The @Guardian Ben Jacobs Lies About Assault on GOP Candidate Greg Gianforte"""
A former minion for the Iowa Democratic Party now operating as a Guardian reporter, Ben Jacobs, assaulted Montana Republican House candidate Greg Gianforte on Wednesday. Jacobs has a history of opposing his political opponents freedom of speech, as GotNews reported in October.
Gianforte is competing against Democratic candidate Rob Quist for a House seat that opened up after President Donald J. Trump appointed Ryan Zinke to be secretary of the interior. The special election is Thursday.
A statement about Jacobs assault from Greg for Montana campaign spokesperson Shane Scanlon reads:

Vote Greg Gianforte, he’s sure to be a slam dunk in Congress
Well, I suppose we are seeing an Alfa Mail who is sick and tired of being called a bully because he likes to play kick ball.
Got my vote.
this was a setup with fox news in 100% collusion. This is the leftist new management being clueless.
dinosaur media being clueless about the fact they are not serving any purpose.
And I received a text on my phone that Fox reporters “witnessed” the body slam.
Fox is dropping like a stone in relevancy.
I would think that body-slamming an MSM puke would cement a candidate’s victory.
Another Democrat dirty trick. If this doesn’t motivate Republicans to vote today, they deserve a Democrat congressman who cheats to win. They’ll give Schumer another vote against Pres. Trump’s tax cut,which is really stupid.
FNC stinks of collusion. Reporters colluding for the setup scenario.
FNC is going going gone. One more reason to cut the cord.
All this body slamming crap from idiots who don’t know the meaning of the phrase.
The guy looks like an asshole that needs more than body slammed.
A statement about Jacobs assault from Greg for Montana campaign spokesperson Shane Scanlon reads: Tonight, as Greg was giving a separate interview in a private office, The Guardians Ben Jacobs entered the office without permission, aggressively shoved a recorder in Gregs face, and began asking badgering questions. Jacobs was asked to leave. After asking Jacobs to lower the records, Jacobs declined. Greg then attempted to grab the phone that was pushed in his face. Jacobs then grabbed Gregs wrist, and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground. Its unfortunate that this aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ.
And this Ben Jacobs appears to have a girlfriend named Michelle Fields.
Thanks to FReeper Red Steel for the photo!
The Fox News team admitted that they only caught the end of the struggle and not the beginning.
Oh yeah, already seen lots of coverage on it in MIAMI FLORIDA. The local media here is hyping this Montana story like it is the Rodney King beating.
Meanwhile, they are SILENT on local Congress clown Debbie Wasserschmuck threatening a POLICE CHIEF. Not a word.
I haven’t seen anything to say this was a body slam. If it was, wouldn’t the guy be on the ground? it is sure getting media hype but doesn’t seem to be any there, there. Just media snowflakes.
No, who is she?
Voted Gianforte 3 weeks ago.
I stand by that vote 100%!
Jacobs files charges.
Perfect set up. Papers retract endorsements.
And there it is. Busted!
“Voted Gianforte 3 weeks ago.
I stand by that vote 100%!”
Wonderful.....how does it look out there? Is it a close race?
