Oregon lawmaker ousted for allowing rioters into State Capitol

Lawmakers in the US state of Oregon have ousted a Republican representative for his role in helping crowds breach the State Capitol in December.
Mike Nearman was removed by a vote of 59 to 1. His was the only no vote.
It marks the first time in the state's history that a sitting Oregon lawmaker has been expelled.
The Oregon riot happened just weeks before hundreds of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in Washington DC on 6 January.
Mr Nearman's removal comes days after a video surfaced appearing to show him telling protesters how to gain access to the State Capitol on 21 December.
Separate footage shows Mr Nearman opening a door to the State Capitol. He then steps around a protester "who rushed past him into the building, followed closely by a second demonstrator who held the door open for numerous other demonstrators, who also rushed in", the resolution for his removal states.

Well, at least he got to vote for himself so he can claim it wasn’t unanimous.
