Hired: Aug. 2019
Previous Experience: Former vice president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an anti-immigrant hate group with ties to eugenicist John Tanton, who has pushed white nationalist politics through a series of anti-immigrant organizations. Nearman once called developmentally disabled workers “subsidized workers,” has opposed expanding healthcare to low-income Oregonians referring to it as “candy,” and even opposed making insurance companies cover people with pre-existing conditions. He has openly defended racist Arizona sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and has called for the privatization of education. His key political donors are a veritable who’s who of extreme right-wing organizations including the anti-LGBTQ Oregon Family Council.
