Photography And Half-Thoughts By Mitchell Hegman

...because some of it is pretty and some of it is not.

Today, here in Montana, we are holding a special election for our sole seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The seat was left vacant when Ryan Zinke ascended to his position as Secretary of the Interior.   Yesterday, our Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, Greg Gianforte, body-slammed a reporter who pressed him with a question about health care and the recently released CBO score for a proposed plan.
The story quickly splashed up onto the national news.
Mr. Gianforte was later cited for assault.
In some corners, people are celebrating Gianforte for “giving it to the liberal press.”
I am repulsed by Greg Gianforte’s behavior.
Gianforte, in thirty violent seconds, fully displayed the reactionary, small-minded thinking that has for too many years produced political division and led us away from solutions to our very real problems.

  1. Love it! Resist the bullies and protest their tunnel-vision agenda!

  2. Gianforte won the election (as expected). I am still waiting for a figure to unify us....
