Man, it has been a rough month for Congressman/assault committer Greg Gianforte.
His mugshot was just released last week following a prolonged process. The reporter he promised an interview to decided to call him out for breaking his promise. The journalism non-profit he paid his hush money to called him out for being all talk. And now, a little-known Billings attorney has out-raised him in the 1st quarter of this election.
According to Federal Election reports, Billings lawyer John Heenan raised $325,000. Recent inmate Greg raised $252,000.
I know what you’re thinking: this doesn’t matter. Greg Gianforte makes the monopoly man look like a pauper. He uses $100 bills to wipe off the Kobe Beef from his lips every night. He names his guns after the Copper King who literally purchased a Senate seat. So what if he gets out-raised?
This shows what Montanans have known for years and GOP insiders have worried about for months: people just don’t like Greg Gianforte. After the assault, the broken promises, and now the mugshot, people just aren’t opening up their wallets for a guy who’s rap sheet looks like one from a former contestant on the Jersey Shore.
I will admit it, John Heenan, Grant Kier, Tom Woods, and whatever other Democrat joins this primary are not going to be able to outspend Greg Gianforte. But if Greg continues to be an asshole, they might not have to.
