Five Days After Gianforte Assault, AG Fox Still Won’t Weigh In
Helena – Today marks five days since a Fox News reporter said she witnessed Greg Gianforte grab someone by the neck, slam him to the ground, and begin punching and yelling at him. The incident was also caught on audio and Gianforte has been charged with assault.
Many politicians from around the country have weighed in on the incident. Tim Fox, the state’s Attorney General who endorsed Gianforte and called him one of the greatest Americans he had ever met, has not.
“Tim Fox must be too scared to step up and condemn Greg Gianforte’s violent behavior, because his silence is defeaning,” said Chris Meagher, spokesman for the Montana Democratic Party. “When will Tim Fox begin to show leadership and condemn this aggressive behavior from Gianforte?”
