Here at America’s Sheriff, we’ve been covering the insanity–and idiocy–of the way Portland, Oregon city leadership has handled the ongoing riots and terrorism that have erupted since the death of George Floyd in May.
Mayor Ted Wheeler is far from tough on the far-left radicals who have been virtually free to riot and cause property damage, but it appears that he is being formidably challenged by a candidate who is even more sympathetic to Antifa.
The Bongino Report reveals that, according to the latest polling, Sarah Iannarone is giving Wheeler a run for his money in the upcoming November 3rd run-off.
In January of last year, the activist wrote on Twitter that “To those who say Antifa are violent thugs: I am not a violent thug and I am Antifa. I am Antifa because the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more. They are coming after our democracy.”
At the time, she’d claimed that reporting on these comments, which she’d freely shared on her public Twitter account, put her in danger, if you’d like an idea of the kind of cognitive dissonance we’re looking at here.
When right-wingers with millions of followers focus on my #EverydayAntifascism the threat to my safety is real. Unlike the incumbent, I actively oppose white nationalists & the rise of fascism. Unlike the incumbent, I don't have a security detail.

Meanwhile, like any good “Antifa” sympathizer, Iannarone is a big fan of real fascists, like the murderous Chinese tyrant, Mao Zedong, who has been credited with the deaths of over 40 million people.
Check out this very odd fashion statement:
Anyway, as for the mayoral race. What is in the drinking water in Portland Oregon? Whatever it is, it is turning people into social misfits.
As Bongino Report explains: “polling in late June had the race in a dead heat, with 33% saying they’d vote for Wheeler, and 32% for Iannarone (and 35% unsure). Now she’s taken the lead.”
From the Willamette Week:
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler trails his challenger Sarah Iannarone by 11 points, according to a poll of likely voters conducted by DHM Research on behalf of the Portland Business Alliance.
The results were presented at a PBA meeting last week.
Wheeler polled at 30% to Iannarone’s 41%, with the remaining 29% of surveyed voters split between writing in a candidate (16%) or remaining undecided (13%). It’s an especially notable result given that the poll was not conducted by either campaign, though PBA is supporting the mayor. (The poll has a four percentage point margin of error.)
I wonder if she’ll wear her pop art dictator skirt when she gets inaugurated?
