Could expelled Rep. Mike Nearman be appointed to his old seat? His supporters want him to try

When all 59 of Mike Nearmanís colleagues in the Oregon House voted to expel the Polk County Republican on June 10, the clock started ticking on the process to fill his seat.

Appointing a lawmaker to a vacant legislative seat is a relatively common occurrence in Oregon. The prospect of the lawmaker who vacated the seat being in the running to fill the seat is not.

Yet thatís a possibility after the first-ever expulsion of a sitting lawmaker in Oregon history. The historic vote in the House came in response to Nearman opening the door to allow violent demonstrators into the Capitol in December.

Usually, when a seat becomes vacant in the middle of a term, itís clear that it wonít be filled by the person who most recently held it. Theyíve either voluntarily retired, been promoted to a higher office, or in some cases, passed away.
