In 2016 Rep. Dallas Heard was criticized by fellow Republican law makers for traveling outside his district to meet with far right militants occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Now he leads the Republican Party in Oregon.

Via @dirquez…
Here’s Dallas Heard on Jan 6th at the Oregon Capitol.

“Democrat or anyone: senator, representative, mayor, county commissioner: if your the enemy of the people, I am your enemy”
On Dec 21 during the storming of the Oregon Capitol, Dallas heard tells the crowd “I’m in full support of your right to enter your capitol building”

The man standing next to him, David Medina, would go on to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6
Here’s David Medina outside Nancy Pelosi’s office
