Republicans Walkout regarding HB2020

Our State Sen Herman Baertschiger is creating quite a stir in the legislature over HB 2020 https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2019/06/as-senate-republicans-threaten-walkout-gov-kate-brown-prepares-for-special-session.html Call the Senate, 503-986-1702 and express your dissatisfaction with his walkout nonsense. Bet he’ll be surprised anyone from his district thinks he’s being a jerk since what he’s doing is mainly a show for his right-wing base.

Update is here:

    Looks like you’ve decided to resign? I guess we’ll need a special election to replace you.

    Dock your pay for walking out on your job. If you worked in a job like most of us, you’d be fired. Can’t do that to you but we can vote you out of office for dereliction of duty, being weak and afraid, hypocrisy, and refusing to accept the fact that ‘elections have consequences’. Get used to it because we are taking this country back. Your party has had to cheat and lie and gerrymander to the point that we have to win by huge numbers to counter the effects of jerrymandering, closing voting places, and cheating Native Americans from voting, along with all the other ways to cheat and impede legitimate voting. We have the numbers now. Can hide but really looks weak and silly. If you can’t cheat you can’t win. How does that feel?
