More Than Half of the Anti-Trump Rioters Arrested Didn't Vote

More than half of the protestors arrested in Portland, Oregon, last weekend did not vote in the state.

According to 13 News Now, 69 of the rioters did not vote or are not registered to vote in the state.

KGW compiled a list of the 112 people arrested by the Portland Police Bureau during recent protests. Those names and ages, provided by police, were then compared to state voter logs by Multnomah County Elections officials.

Records show 34 of the protesters arrested didn’t return a ballot for the November 8 election. Thirty-five of the demonstrators taken into custody weren’t registered to vote in Oregon.

Twenty-five protesters who were arrested did vote.

KGW is still working to verify voting records for the remaining 17 protesters who were arrested.

Nationwide riots or “protests” have dominated the headlines while violence against Trump supporters has gotten barely a mention. Some of the more inflammatory elements of the rallies have also been downplayed.

One report shows empty buses used to transport “participants” to a weekend protest in Chicago. Another shows that ads were placed on Craigslist looking to hire people to show up at the election protests. Recently reports surfaced that the protestors were paid to disrupt Trump rallies during the campaign.  Is it really a surprise that the protestors in Portland are not really aggrieved voters?
