WA State Republican Matt Shea identified as domestic terrorist and will be removed from duties

The report prepared for the state Legislature said Rep. Matt Shea, a Republican from Spokane Valley in eastern Washington, also found that he trained young people to fight a “holy war,” condoned intimidating opponents and promoted militia training by the Patriot Movement for possible armed conflict with law enforcement.

Shea was suspended from the state House Republican Caucus Thursday evening, and advised to resign, House Minority Leader J.T. Wilcox tweeted. “He cannot use House Republican staff, he cannot meet with the caucus, his office will be moved,” Wilcox said. Shea will also be removed from his House committee assignments.

2. He's refusing to resign!




If you have a twitter account, go write to WA State Speaker of the House Rep. Laurie Jinkins@lauriejinkins2 as well as the WA State House Minority Leader Rep. JT Wilcox.
We need to make our voices heard. Especially in our districts.

3. I don't say this much, but I applaud the Republicans for this

Over in Eastern Washington, the local Republican county organizations have been taken over by white supremacists. Whitman county in particular has been home to white supremacist activists, involved in national agitation while successfully taking over the county operations.

The Republican party needs to address this, and I'm glad that they are.
