White Woman Yells Racial Remarks at Voter, Gets Arrested

Wendy Bies, a 53-year-old white woman, walked into the Gallatin County Courthouse looking for a ballot; she walked out of the courthouse with a criminal record.

How did this trade happen She saw Brian Mango waiting in line to vote in the Montana’s battleground U.S. Senate and congressional campaigns on Tuesday, and told the 22-year-old, “Go back where you came from.”

“Do you know why mom is here Because Americans bombed her country,” Mango said of his mother, a refugee from Laos.

“Do you know why my dad’s here Because they brought his ancestors here in chains,” he said of his father, who is Black.

Bies replied with ridicule, “They wanted to come to America to get out of that f*cking a**-hole city. So don’t you tell me this is not where you want to be.”

Realizing that she may have started something she could not get out of, Bies bellowed, “You are not going to stop me from voting. We need a civil order to separate us.”

Mango said Bies began making racial comments after she told him he had a “cute butt.”

Footage was captured by Tennison Big Day, a Native American, who was behind the two of them in line. Big Day told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle he heard Bies claim that it was President Trump who gave Mango his voting rights.

Bies spent the rest of election night in Gallatin County jail after being arrested on charges of obstructing a police officer and disorderly conduct. She pleaded not guilty and remained jailed on $500 bail Wednesday afternoon.
