Democrat State Representative in Oregon is Exposed for Domestic Violence

Published

on

Andrea Valderrama, the chair of the David Douglas School Board and a 2018 Portland City Council candidate, was able to obtain a restraining order earlier this month against Oregon State Representative Diego Hernandez.

Valderrama’s March 3 filing in Multnomah County Circuit Court accuses Hernandez, with whom she lived with from January through April 2019, of getting drunk, engaging in threatening behavior and throwing things, including his phone, at her.

“He usually mixes alcohol, narcotic pills, and marijuana,” the filing stated. “This use leads to violent outbursts and unpredictability.”

“I filed this restraining order because I feared for my safety and my daughter’s safety,” Valderrama told the Willamette Week. “The pattern of behavior that I experienced is behavior that he acknowledged.”

Hernandez denied the accusations.

“It’s important for me to say unequivocally that I refute the characterizations that are in the petition, both of my actions and my personality,” he proclaimed. “I believe an airing of the facts in court would present a different, clearer account of the past months, but of course the restraining order is being dismissed, and for good reason….I wish Andrea only the best and I hope we can all move on.”

A court hearing is scheduled for Thursday, March 26, 2020, though the two are negotiating a settlement through lawyers.

“The court approved this restraining order and it is currently in place,” Valderrama told WW. “It has not been dismissed. We were working towards a settlement that would dismiss the restraining order.”

Valderrama’s court filing cites a June 21 incident from last 2019 when the two went out to dance: “He took pill and drank three very strong drinks,” the filing stated. Valderrama’s filing highlights that he went to dance with other women and returned to find her dancing with other people as well. He became furious, and the two left the venue. He yelled at her for three hours, the filing noted.

“This behavior escalated to physical violence when he threw his phone at me,” the filing states. “He also threw another object at me that was on the table.”

The filing contends that Hernandez did not remember what happened in the morning, but that he told her that a past partner had said he behaved in a similar way on a combination of pills and alcohol.

The filing also features text-message apologies from Hernandez, for excessive drinking and for his mistreatment of her. “I’m sorry. I promise I won’t mix alcohol and drugs like that again,” one text included in the filing read.

His attorney claims that both parties have been in negotiations over terms for a dismissal of the restraining order.

Valderrama settled for a dismissal with an agreement for a mutual no-contact order.

Hernandez is looking get his legal fees covered.

“Portland Democrat “mixes alcohol, narcotic pills, and marijuana” leading to “violent outbursts” per filing. I’m calling on Speaker Kotek and Gov. Kate Brown to ask him to resign. He is unfit to serve. CC:

Given that Hernandez is a minority and Democrat, he will likely keep his position due to the fact that the Left overwhelmingly protects its most radical and degenerate members.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
