Gianforte calls for civil politics after assaulting reporter

Source: MSN/Associated Press

BOZEMAN, Mont. Montana's incoming congressman is calling for civility in politics as heads to Washington with a conviction for assaulting a reporter.

Greg Gianforte will be sworn in next week as the state's only congressman following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise.

He spoke to The Associated Press Friday in his first national interview since winning last month's Montana special congressional election.

The Republican technology entrepreneur pleaded guilty this week to assaulting Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs the night before the May 25 election.

Of course, Gianforte would see no irony or hypocrisy in lecturing the American people on civility.

1. I'm still not over this election.

I don't know why so many Montanans insist on voting against their own best interests. Gianforte = Thug

republican campaigns, where does this stop.

7. He should call for unity too, now that he's in office.

All Montanans should get together, with him in charge.

14. More like he calls for other people to be civil.

But people like him can do what they want - like he did.

I'm sorry, but the right-wing current stream of "can we all get along" is pure theatre.
