The Oregon House of Representatives ousted one of its own for his role in a riot that occurred at the state Capitol.

Four-term Republican state Rep. Mike Nearman was expelled from the House on Thursday night in a 59-1 vote. He was the only person to cast a ballot in favor of him continuing his position.


Nearman was removed for "disorderly behavior" after Dec. 21, 2020, when he was accused of letting rioters into the state Capitol building, which had been closed to the public for the pandemic.

His actions led to dozens of people gaining access to the House, some of whom were armed and wearing body armor, where they caused thousands of dollars in damages and injured six police officers.

“There's no reason to hear both sides and have at least something resembling due process,” Nearman said in a statement. “The party in power doesn't have to be fair — might makes right. So, if that's what you want to do, let's do what the people have sent us here to do. Let's decide."

A few dozen Nearman supporters stood outside the Capitol to support him. There were chants of “let us in” and banging on a door.

House Speaker Tina Kotek, a Democrat, introduced the House resolution to remove Nearman from office on Monday, and she created a bipartisan committee that voted to move the resolution to the House floor Thursday.

“The Oregon House of Representatives has taken the unprecedented step of expelling one of its members,” she said in a statement. “Elected leaders must be held to the highest possible standard. The facts are clear that Mr. Nearman unapologetically coordinated and planned a breach of the Oregon State Capitol. His actions were blatant and deliberate, and he has shown no remorse for jeopardizing the safety of every person in the Capitol that day. Given the extraordinary circumstances, this was the only reasonable path forward. Safety — for the public, building employees, legislators and their staff — continues to be my top priority in managing this extraordinary session.”


Nearman’s expulsion came after a video showed him appearing to coach people on how and where to gather ahead of time.

He was charged on two misdemeanor counts in April for his role in the events of Dec. 21, including first-degree official misconduct and second-degree criminal trespass.

New York Giants: One young corner could end up being a building block for the future

Nobody anticipated the New York Giants spending so much of their resources on the secondary this off-season. Ranging from the signing of Adoree  Jackson on a three-year, $39 million deal to spending multiple draft picks on corners, they have completely upgraded a unit that performed well in 2020 despite deficiencies.

Having gone through a rotation at CB2, finally landing on Isaac Yiadom, who opposing teams picked on throughout the campaign, they decided they needed a corner who could thrive in press, man coverage. That corner is Jackson, a former Tennessee Titan who represents an aggressive style defender that can match up again speedy and more shifty receivers.

However, the Giants also added a nickel option in UCF stand-out Aaron Robinson. Robinson will compete with second-year player out of UCLA, Darnay Holmes, for the starting slot corner job.

Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report believes Robinson can develop into a solid starter:

With most of the team’s early 2019 and 2020 picks also expected to be big factors as the Giants wrap up a rebuild, that leaves cornerback Aaron Robinson as the one to watch for the future.

The UCF product will likely have to compete with sophomore fourth-round selection Darnay Holmes for a slot role in support of presumed starters James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson, both of whom make big money.

The smooth and physical Robinson has the length and instincts to turn into a strong starter, but rookie corners almost always need time, and he lacks the speed to compensate for the work he’ll have to do early on.

Robinson is another aggressive corner who plays tough man coverage. With Patrick Graham going in a different route compared to his 2020 scheme, we should expect to see more cover-1 and cover-0, relying on heavier blitz packages and more man coverage.

The Giants traded up in the third round to snag Robinson, who the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys eyed. The 5’11”, 186 pound senior had a round-2 projection by They noted his strengths as a combination of size and speed as a nickel. He has an effective punch when given the greenlight to press and adequate foot quickness and agility. His weaknesses remain diagnosing routes and having top-end speed.

Given the role he will play, the Giants might’ve landed themselves a day one impact player in the secondary, and providing competition for Holmes can only bring out the best of both players.

There is a very good chance the Giants have one of the best defenses in football after bolstering the secondary and pass rush this off-season. Hopefully, Robinson will have a successful career with Big Blue, as they look for athletes with tremendous upside that can also make an immediate impact.
