Oregon Republican Representative Mike Nearman was expelled from the legislature on a 59-1 vote. The only “no” vote was his.
The lawmakers removed Nearman because he let far-right demonstrators, some of whom were armed, into the Oregon Capitol building on Dec. 21 while lawmakers were holding a special session. The Capitol was closed to the public due to the pandemic and still is.
Surveillance video actually captured Nearman opening the door for these protesters and standing aside as they came in.
Then last week another video surfaced of him coaching the protesters in advance of the day.
Meanwhile back in Washington, numerous investigative threads exist linking extremists from the Republican ranks to conspiratorial activity and possible coordination prior to the 1/6 Insurrection. Various sitting members of Congress apparently gave tours to the invaders and provided maps and details of where targets like Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi might be found.
If that isn’t high treason…
At any rate, the Oregon Legislature has now shown Congress how this is done. Let’s get to it and invoke Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
