Oregon GOP legislator ousted for role in allowing breech of Oregon State Capitol

"SALEM, Ore. The Oregon House of Representatives ousted Republican Rep. Mike Nearman Thursday night, the first time in state history a sitting Oregon lawmaker has been expelled.

The tally was 59-1, with the only vote against coming from Nearman himself. He showed no contrition during brief comments on the floor of the House.

Nearman was removed for the disorderly behavior of allowing rioters into the closed Capitol building during a special legislative session on Dec. 21, 2020.

His actions led to dozens of people some armed and wearing body armor gaining access to the Capitol, thousands of dollars in damage and six injured Salem and Oregon State police officers."

5. Yeah, the guilty one voted not to punish the guilty one

That's what I'm thinking happened on the federal level with those that voted against having a commission to investigate Jan 6.

8. well, what do you know.

Surprising votes from the GOP members. I'd thought the Ammon Bundy/Sagebrush Rebellion wing of their party would have stuck by him.
