Via Huff Post: Just a day before a closely watched special election in Montana — in a race he had been leading by single digits, meaning it was far too close a race in a deep-red district — Republican Greg Gianforte allegedly body-slammed a Guardian reporter in an attack described by the victim and a Fox News crew as “a shocking assault.”

In fact, Gianforte has been charged with assault, leading several prominent papers to withdraw their endorsements.

Even if he wins — 2/3 of Montanans have already cast ballots — he's still facing legal jeopardy for his alleged actions.

Gianforte's challenger is political neophyte (and banjo-strumming bluegrass musician) Rob Quist.
