The Oregon Republican Party released the following statement as the Stop The Abuse Recall Kate Brown campaign announces that the number of petition signatures to qualify for a vote to remove the Governor from office has fallen narrowly short of the minimum required:
To our great disappointment, the Stop The Abuse Recall Kate Brown campaign has fallen 2,796 signatures or less than 1% short of the minimum number of 280,050 signatures required to qualify to put a recall of the Governor on the ballot this fall, stated Chairman Bill Currier. It is the highest bar for petition signature gathering in our states Constitution and has definitely been an uphill struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic, along with other obstacles.
In 2019, nearly 25% of our signatures were gathered at the Oregon State Fair, county fairs, and numerous festivals which have all been canceled due to the Governors lockdowns, depriving us of an estimated 50 to 80 thousand additional signatures in 2020, said Currier. Also, due to an arbitrary and cynical change in the law by the Democrat supermajority-run state legislature between the 2019 recall and the one in 2020, the ability to freely download and pre-print ePetition sheets to provide to voters was severely reduced. This made it much more difficult for thousands of businesses and individuals to conveniently provide signature sheets to Oregon voters to exercise their state constitutional right to sign the petition.
The campaign also faced totally unnecessary and legally-questionable rule changes towards the end of signature gathering from the state elections division that required all the petition sheets to be renumbered, a requirement that the elections division refused to put in writing. This cost hundreds of man hours at a critical time in the campaign and at a time that it could afford it least.

Did they really think the state was going to let them get that on the ballot? How naive.
If your objective is to kill the king, you had best not miss!................
Aren’t there some additional signatures in the trunk of that 2005 Prius parked at PDX? Plus those late-arriving signatures from nursing homes?

Demand a recount, they cheated.
Considering there was no going door to door because of covid, she’s in REAL TROUBLE.
The next one will have more than enough signatures.
Arrest her for sedition, Federal charges.
Oregon Republican Party, hope you put that effort into electing Republicans in DC...
Reminds me of Sodom and Gomorrah. Not enough people to spare the state.
Don’t worry. This count means all demon-rats in Oregon are sweating. They and other demon-rats have been using covid to control the masses. The demise of mail in voting is at hand also.
Oregonians have had enough. That includes many who had businesses in Portland. There has been a mass exodus from the Portland schithole.
Bull crap; it’s who counts the votes that counts! They had the votes.
During my training in OR, you hear that one signature which is invalid, invalidates the entire page of signatures.
Its not hard to invalidate thousands.
DO IT AGAIN
Yes...but...they check every page prior to submitting....
If you’d like to be on the Oregon ping list, please freep mail me.
