Militia Groups Expected To Protect GOP Lawmakers Who Fled Climate Change Vote



Republican senators went into hiding earlier this week to block the vote on climate change legislation.

While Democrats already have a majority in the chamber, 20 members must be present for a quorum. According to Business Insider, following the walk-out, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown deployed state police to recoup lawmakers.

Now, militia groups are allegedly threatening violence to protect the GOP senators, prompting the closure of the Oregon capitol's Saturday floor session.

Local law enforcement says the safety of legislators, staff, and citizen visitors could be compromised if certain threatened behaviors were realized. Send bachelors and come heavily armed.

I'm not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It's just that simple." Republican state Senator Brian Boquist.
