Rabid Republicans in Oregon senate
Rabid Republicans in Oregon senate
So, here's the story: The Oregon state senate was on the cusp of a cap-and-invest bill to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Apparently, there weren't enough Republican senators to block it the traditional way, so they decided to walk out en masse to keep it from passing. And not only are they refusing to come back to work, but one is threatening state troopers who could potentially force them back to work. 

Quote:Oregon state senator Brian Boquist, a Republican from Dallas, Oregon, was responding to Democratic Governor Kate Brown's ultimatum that she would call state police to round up GOP legislators who are threatening a second walkout intended to block a greenhouse gas emissions cap-and-invest bill. Brown said she would notify state police to compel the GOP lawmakers to attend a special session at the Capitol in Salem until the Legislature's work was complete. But soon after, while speaking with local television station KGW-TV Wednesday, Boquist said the governor better send Oregon state troopers who are "bachelors" and "heavily armed."

Boquist later doubled down on the threat against state police—which he bragged was not "thinly veiled"—and said he will refuse at all costs "to be arrested as a political prisoner in Oregon, period."


I can't be the only one to think this could lead to more shit like this in the future, can I?
