Greg Gianforte on Civil Rights
We need equal opportunity, not equal outcomes
Aaron Flint, a spokesman for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Greg Gianforte, said the Bozeman high-tech entrepreneur thinks that oftentimes women should get more pay. "For example, his daughter goes to Stanford and got a perfect ACT score. Greg thinks she
should get paid more. As he's stated on the road from Ekalaka to Eureka: We need equal opportunity, not equal outcomes." Flint noted Gianforte's chief operating officer at RightNow was a woman, along with several other top executives and employees.
