Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney, a Democrat is taking what is described as a medical leave of absence while scrutiny intensifies over how the state legislature handled eight sexual harassment claims.

“In the past few days, the Senate Democrats have met behind closed doors to discuss the future of their caucus and ongoing internal conflicts,” said Oregon Public Broadcasting. “Some Democrats are pushing for a leadership change and argue that with Courtney’s leadership real cultural change will be difficult.”

Tuesday, The Willamette Week reported that the Oregon Legislature has agreed to pay $1.32 million in taxpayer funds to settle eight claims of sexual harassment levied against its members.

“The investigation found eight women who had suffered harassment by various people that ranged from unwanted touching to verbal and electronic propositioning,” the paper said.

Radio show host Lars Larson, whose broadcast is based in Portland, Oregon, blasted the state lawmakers in his morning commentary.

He said:

This should make taxpayers absolutely furious. Officials agrees to pay 1.3 million taxpayer dollars to settle sex harassment claims because of the bad behavior of elected officials.  The bad behavior has been going on for years and has been ignored or even covered up by some of the top officials in Oregon government… all of them members of the Democrat Party by the way.  Just yesterday, one of the top enablers, Senate President Peter Courtney announced he’s taking ten days of medical leave. Translation…When the heat got too hot, Courtney decides to disappear. That’s a “Profile in Courage.” Courtney has already paid off one employee with your money for the way she was mistreated in his own office. His chief of staff for a dozen years took early retirement and disappeared. House Speaker Tina Kotek has been silent about the mess.  And that million plus dollars already paid…there’s absolutely no guarantee that’s the last of the bills. And if you pay taxes…you’re on the hook for all of it. All of this in the wonderful, woke, progressive, #metoo, snowflake, blue-state, Democrat Party controlled People’s Republic of Portlandia.

“On Monday, Democratic Party chair Jeanne Atkins sent a letter to Senate Democrats urging them to ‘take whatever steps are necessary,’ to show they are committed to eradicating harassment at the state Capitol,” said OPB.

It appears that Oregon lawmakers have just scratched the surface of their own #MeToo scandal.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
