        Oregon has both blue and red MAGA nuts. Been an interesting year or so …

      Mike Nearman, Independence OR (SW of Salem a bit)

       

      During a special session on December 21, 2020, Nearman let armed protesters into the Oregon State Capitol to protest against health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon.[8][9] Joey Gibson, political activist and founder of Patriot Prayer, posted a video on Parler indicating a state representative let the group into the capitol,[10] and in January 2021 security video was released of Nearman allowing similar right-wing protesters to enter the Oregon State Capitol Building through a door…

      On April 30, 2021, prosecutors charged Nearman with official misconduct in the first degree (Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum 364 days in prison and a US$6,250 fine) and criminal trespass in the second degree (Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $1,250 fine).[15] Nearman did not appear in court on May 11 when he was arraigned on the charges, and his attorney did not file a plea. Nearman must appear in court in person or remotely for a June 29 hearing.[16]..

      In June 2021, video was discovered of a meeting at the office of the Freedom Foundation on December 16, 2020, during which Nearman detailed his plan to allow protestors entry to the capitol, which he dubbed “Operation Hall Pass”. He couched it in a layer of irony, claiming to know nothing of the plan and saying that the cellphone number he gave out was just random numbers.[17]

      IOW, a run of the mill unprincipled lying a-hole

      Graduated from a Jesuit prep school and a Jesuit college (Marquette) so he seems pretty Catholic.  Then he worked for his family’s furniture business, which I’m guessing failed/closed when a lot of other local independent furniture stores started dying.  He got a computer science degree sometime before 2010, when he starte working in that field, then legislator 2015 to present.
