And other people at the scene tell different stories. Gee, I think I specifically mentioned that as a problem.

All the video cameras and phones were confiscated by the DNC for review.

The only one that told a really different story was clapping statement, of which was a total lie considering Gianforte applied last night for his actions.


Which is it?

Did it not happen or did it happen and Jacobs totally deserved it as a couple on here have said?

Can we just wait for the left wingers to release the videos?

In his acceptance speech the dude was classy; admitted he was wrong, apologized, and said that kind of behavior was not acceptable.

You're right. There is more to life than money. Let's see if Jacobs accepts the apology and drops the charges. Let's see if Jacobs forgets about the big money.

From 2004...Apparently, when the Left was OK with it...

As a side not, notice the bold blue...I haven't heard a damn peep from him concerning the protests, shouting down, and outright violence when a Conservative attempts to speak at a college...

AL FRANKEN KNOCKS DOWN DEAN HECKLER

Quote:
Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean.

The tussle left Frankens trademark thick-rim glasses broken, but he said he was not injured.

Franken who seemed in a state of shock and out of breath after the incident was helped back to his feet by several people who watched the tussle. Police arrived soon after.

I got down low and took his legs out, said Franken afterwards.

Franken said hes not backing Dean but merely wanted to protect the right of people to speak freely. I would have done it if he was a Dean supporter at a Kerry rally, he said.

Im neutral in this race but Im for freedom of speech, which means people should be able to assemble and speak without being shouted down.

The trouble started when several supporters of fringe presidential candidate Lyndon Larouche began shouting accusations at Dean.

Franken emerged from the crowd and charged one male protester, grabbing him with a bear hug from behind and slamming him onto the floor.

Bob Etheridge D-NC got physical with Student reporter and there is a video. I'm not sure if he was ever charged with anything or sued.
