A senior staffer with Congressman Greg Gianforte’s campaign for governor has been fired after a Bozeman Police Department report said he used his car to cause damage to another car parked next to him in Bozeman last Monday.

A Bozeman Police Department Crash Name Exchange report shows Gianforte’s political director for his campaign for governor, Daniel Duffey, was involved in an incident in Bozeman's Cannery District on Monday, Oct. 26.

The report said Duffey opened his car door and repeatedly struck the car parked next to him with his door, causing visible damage.

No charges have been filed at this point. The Gianforte campaign issued a statement in response to the alleged incident:

“As soon as we first learned of this, Mr. Duffey was terminated and is no longer with the campaign.”
