GOP strike in Oregon over climate change bill enters 5th day

State Republicans in Oregon continue to be hunted by police after fleeing the Capitol last week over a bill that aims to fight greenhouse gas emissions. Monday marked the fifth day in a row that the politicians had failed to turn up for work. The group of Republicans fled last Thursday in an attempt to stop the Democrat majority voting on legislation that would take action on climate change.

It's not in protest, it's in prevention of the bill passing by creating a lame duck session. Dems requested law enforcement to force them to attend, that should be news.

Does anyone else find it disconcerting that the only alternate point of view is from Russia. Edited because of my clumsy thumbs:P

If only we had principled Republicans in California but most are just as bad or even worse than the Dems. Nice to see they are taking a stand in Oregon at the very least.

I love the framing. One of them said "send bachelors" and another said he'd come for whoever sent cops after him. Why Republicans aren't up in arms over this governor's virtue signal at the expense of the working class, Oregon's economy, and not living in an authoritarian state, all for an inconsequential effect.
