Reporter Gets Body Slammed by a Montana Politician

The political world has been quite the scene the last few months.

Recently, an incident broke out in Montana in which The Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs was allegedly assaulted by Greg Giafonte, a Republican candidate running for the House seat in Montana. A question for Giafonte regarding the Republican healthcare plan angered him enough to attack Jacobs.

“This is the strangest thing that has ever happened to me in reporting on politics,” said Jacobs, after having his glasses broken in the attack.

Since the incident, audio from the police scanner has been released (in which you can see below) shedding light on what happened.
