Oregon House expels Rep. Nearman after December Capitol breach

Source: KATU

SALEM, Ore. ó The Oregon House of Representatives voted to expel one of its own members, Republican Rep. Mike Nearman, Thursday night after he let far-right demonstrators into a closed Capitol during a December special session.

The vote was 59 to 1. The only member voting against House Resolution 3 was Nearman.

It was the first time in its history that the body voted to expel one of its members.

A special committee voted unanimously earlier in the day to recommend expelling him.

1. If Repubs in Oregon can admit this act was punishable

then why canít the Repubs in DC admit that the aiders and abettors in congress deserve punishment for Jan 6?

3. There's no equivalent of MF45....

in Oregon to scare them with nasty screeds on OAN, Newsmax, and Fox. There's also no Murdoch, Mercer or Koch to withhold millions in dark money. That would be my guess.

4. Because all the Republicans in DC care about is gaining more power and they would murder

their own grandmothers (probably with a smile on their faces while doing the deed as well) if that is what it took to get it.

8. I'm frankly surprised. Since when do any republi-CONS stand on genuine nonpartisan principle?

Iím surprised. Iíve come to expect the worst from GOP-anything/anywhere/anyhow and so far theyíve been mighty true to that.

Still donít trust but this was kind of a nice surprise.

I wouldnít have expected it. And a unanimous vote on their part, too? Since when did each of Ďem start growing a conscience or a desire to do the right thing?

9. The tapes showed blatant criminality.

If his actions could have shown to be even slightly ambiguous the Repubs would be excusing it.

10. Guess he stunk too bad even for them.

Iíve been conditioned by now to expect nothing but the worst of ANYONE and ANYTHING republi-CON.

6. Good!!

What a horrible person! The proverbial fox in the henhouse!

His insurrection efforts in Oregon, planned by him as revealed in a later-released video, seemed almost like a rehearsal for what later happened in DC on January 6th.

11. One of the Oregon House Republicans, Bill Post,

voted to expel, and explained that Nearman had lied to him. Hard to imagine a Republican lying.

12. As an Oregonian I am surprised the QOP troglodytes threw

Him out. Apparently sedition is the one bipartisan issue. I do wonder if the Dems threatened to exclude them from redistricting.
