The Oregon House of Representatives ousted four-term Republican Rep. Mike Nearman Thursday night, the first time in state history a sitting Oregon lawmaker has been expelled. The tally was 59-1, with the only vote against coming from Nearman himself. He showed no contrition during brief comments on the floor of the House. Nearman was removed for the disorderly behavior of allowing rioters into the closed Capitol building during a special legislative session on Dec. 21, 2020.
