- Jacobs had glasses broken in attack by Republican Greg Gianforte last week
- Reporter agrees to donate broken pair to Newseum in Washington DC
Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs replaced his glasses on Tuesday, after they were broken when he was assaulted by Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte.
Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault after attacking Jacobs when the reporter asked him a question about healthcare last week. The Republican went on to win the special election in Montana the next day.
