a billionaire thinks he's above the law? my word!
 
2017-07-19 11:23:45 AM  
What a farking piece of shiat. He really deserves to be in Congress.
 
2017-07-19 11:33:23 AM  
Finger print him. Photograph him. Release the public records and let a mug shot removal scam internet site get his pictures.

What an entitled little snowflake he is.
 
2017-07-19 11:41:13 AM  
Makes you wonder who would win in a fight between the House Republicans and the House Democrats.  But once Mitch McConnell charges up his turtle shell and smashes it through a dozen Democrats, we'll know the answer to that, lol.
 
2017-07-19 11:48:04 AM  
What other crimes is he hiding?  What will come to light when they run his prints?  And does it involve that girl back in 1990?
 
2017-07-19 11:48:39 AM  
But I thought we had to get tough on folks acting like thugs?

Which is it?
 
2017-07-19 11:51:37 AM  
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
 
2017-07-19 11:56:25 AM  
He apologized.  How much more humble can a rich white guy get?
 
2017-07-19 12:11:48 PM  
Lock him up!
 
2017-07-19 12:29:21 PM  
If he's not going to comply with the court's order, then the CA/prosecutor should file an objection to the defense and a motion to impose the Congressman's sentence.

Not even. The mugshot scammers target people whom nobody's heard of, and who want it kept that way. Everybody's heard of Gianforte.

He just doesn't want the mug shot used in a Fark photoshop contest.

Rules for thee, not for me!

Isn't white privilege amazing?
 
2017-07-19 01:14:49 PM  
Time to crank up the shame machine with the news. fark this guy.
 
2017-07-19 01:14:51 PM  
Laws are for brown people and other democrats.
 
2017-07-19 01:15:33 PM  
Gee, you mean the thug who attacked somebody for no reason isn't exactly a stand-up guy? I'd have never guessed.
 
2017-07-19 01:16:41 PM  
Ah yes... the kind of quality person I've come to expect from the GOP.
 
2017-07-19 01:17:42 PM  
While his behavior is unwarranted... Soon he won't be.
 
2017-07-19 01:18:23 PM  
The party of personal responsibility, folks!
 
2017-07-19 01:18:41 PM  
This will just turn his stupid base on. Anarchy! Anarchy!  I don't know what that means but I like it!
 
2017-07-19 01:19:34 PM  
I didn't know you could just REFUSE to go get fingerprinted. White dudes man. Jesus H. Christ.

/I hope the judge in the case makes an example of him
 
2017-07-19 01:20:10 PM  
Also, money says he used the phrase "I already apologized, so why do I have to _____" at least once.
 
2017-07-19 01:20:19 PM  
What a dick.
"These laws only apply to the little people!"
The only reason he won is that most of the population had already voted.

If he drags out the blue shell, we're all farked.

Its never been my experience.
Im told we arent taking these off or cleaning up the blood untill you are processed
 
2017-07-19 01:22:06 PM

2017-07-19 01:22:57 PM  
Of course he's above the law, he's a Republican.

Archidude: Isn't white privilege amazing?


I'm sure Cletus Lee Dirtfarmer in Arkansas can expect the same kind treatment as a billionaire politician if he assaults a member of the press.
 
2017-07-19 01:23:39 PM  
....how the hell do you refuse to be fingerprinted?

I hesitated for a second and got cuffed to a bench until I "changed my mind."
 
2017-07-19 01:25:08 PM  
A Republican who thinks the rules shouldn't apply to him? Get the fark out.
 
2017-07-19 01:25:24 PM  
He already said words. What do you Dems need, deeds?

What does that have to do with governing?

Or if the reporter was a minority.

How did he get a gov job without being printed?
I had to get printed just for volunteering at the Y
 
2017-07-19 01:27:30 PM  
Just the liberal justice system letting vicious thugs go unpunished.
 
2017-07-19 01:27:48 PM  
He should get some advice from a pro:

Once more for people in the cheap seats: Politicians do not believe laws apply to them.  Laws are for the general populace, not policy makers.

Don't public school teachers and aids have to get printed, too?

What the hell?

Wait wtf, I thought there was a Mario reference in your post somewhere and it isn't there. I'm going crazy.

I'm surprised the reporter who got waylaid by Gianforte hasn't sued the fark out of him.

Also, fark Montana. You claim to be such rugged individualists and yet you settle for this meathead to be your representative.

It would be pretty god damned bizarre for a mandatory reporter not to have been screened against being a sexual predator

Do what you would do to anyone else and arrest the SOB. Give him 30 days in the hole to remind him that the law applies to everyone.

it doesn't though.
It only applies to the poor and/or minorities.
