The Oregon Republican Party launched Monday a recall campaign against Democratic Gov. Kate Brown (https://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/kate-brown/) after a contentious legislative session that saw her sic state troopers on runaway GOP legislators fighting her climate-change agenda.
The recall paperwork, signed Monday by Oregon GOP chair Bill Currier, accused her of ignoring or overturning the will of the voters on driver’s licenses for illegal aliens and tax increases, as well as denying citizens protection from “the domestic terrorist threat known as Antifa.”
“Governor Brown (https://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/kate-brown/) has subjected the people of Oregon to a long line of abuses of power while at the same time refusing to address their legitimate concerns,” said the recall statement. “She has fostered a toxic political environment that stifles meaningful discourse. She has threatened retaliation against her own citizens when her political agenda is not successful in the legislature.”
Ms. Brown (https://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/kate-brown/) said she was “not backing down” after 11 Senate Republican legislators killed a Democratic cap-and-trade bill by fleeing the state for a week, denying the majority Democrats a quorum, near the end of the legislative session.
