Washington Post Opinion - Gianforte's behavior was inexcusable. The House should not tolerate it.

May 27, 2017View for printing

"GIANFORTE GRABBED Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him." That was Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna's account of how Greg Gianforte allegedly assaulted Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, the day before Mr. Gianforte won a special election to fill Montana's at-large congressional seat. Along with an audio recording of the incident, the eyewitness accounts confirm that the now-congressman-elect engaged in brutish behavior. That he subsequently tried to blame Mr. Jacobs for the incident, in which the reporter was merely asking an honest question, makes Mr. Gianforte's actions all the more inexcusable.
