The Democratic mayor of Portland, Ore., is moving from his $840,000 condo to avoid rioters who have repeatedly targeted the building, according to a report.

Ted Wheeler wrote to neighbors in his building to say it would be “best for me and for everyone else’s safety and peace” for him to move from the building that rioters tried to torch on his 58th birthday Monday, according to The Oregonian.
“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” Wheeler reportedly wrote, according to a screenshot of the email.

“It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”

The mayor bought his two-bedroom condo in the building with 114 units for $840,000 in 2017, the paper said, citing property records. It has regularly been a scene of protests, with fireworks lit and lights shone on the building as fires also get lit in the street.

Weak and spineless.

If he won't even protect his own home how will he protect the citizens of Portland. What this means is BLAMTIFA shows up at your house your only option is to move.

As much of an idiot he is, he didn't deserve to be run out of his home because he won't bend the knee and give in to the terrorists demands. He just basically told them that they win.

They don't support Democrats, they just know they can bully them out of the way thats why they want Biden to win. Let this be a lesson even if you pander to the mob and protect them they are coming for you to.

Are we supposed to be impressed by that condo price? He's a corrupt politician, of course he has money... What a shitty article, just mention how much of a slimey weasal he is and how badly he let Portland get ravaged by psychopaths with criminal records.

This is the most giant pussy I may have ever witnessed. He's supposed to be in charge of the city. Instead of arresting the people outside of his own home who are committing serious crimes, he is just going to run away and hope they don't figure out where he went? What a way to handle it...

Almost as if there are strings being pulled from above? :pie_thinking:

Democrat politicians openly admitted at the RNC that they were threatened by those in charge of the cabal, if they did not walk in lockstep.

Crazy idea. All those people your police arrest, and your DA releases without bail and charges. You could charge them with the crime they were arrested for.

He is just pawn. He is probably being told to drag it out and dont do anything from higher up in the democratic party and promised favors or backing in the future or possibly even threatened the end of his career by those same people.
I refuse to believe someone can be so obtuse about whats going on.

He epitomizes everything that is wrong with today’s democrats and the leftest ideology that has wrecked havoc in nations all over the world. I pray voters on nov 3 will have recognized this.

he will be in a runoff election against an open Antifa supporter... outlook is not good for Portland.

He needs to be tarred and feathered, then pilloried on the street; left to the mob he supports.
Can't we just give him a good ol fashioned Canadian tussel?

Buddeh. I'm a little upset. I hope i wasn't too harsh with you guy.

As a democrat mayor of a democrat town, I'd like to say a strong city and community comes from working together and not running away from obstacles. As democrats, we can accomplish great things. All we have to do is show Republicans what peaceful smart people we are............

Uhhhh...... My Uber is here...... Gotta go.

But he doesn't, he's not a leftist. He plays the middle but in that inept way that makes everyone on both sides hate him. If he was an actual leftist at least he would have some supporters.
