Montana's New Congressman

Here's a question worth considering:  Should the House refuse to seat the newly elected representative from Montana because he allegedly body-slammed a reporter on the night before the election?

The guy got elected by the people of Montana, but the media and the Democrats now want him barred from taking the seat to which he was duly elected.  Does that make sense to anyone other than the partisan hacks?

Speaker Ryan has already said that no action would be taken to bar the representative.  As Ryan put it, "the people of Montana have spoken, and the choice is theirs."

One thing the Democrats might consider:  if the new Republican from Montana is barred, should Democrats who have done the same thing be expelled?  I'm speaking of course about Minnesota Democrat Al Franken who body-slammed demonstrator trying to speak at rally for Howard Dean some years back.  Here's the link to the story.
