Rep. Hernandez to Resign
Creates a vacancy in the East Portland house district.

Oregon Public Broadcasting is reporting that State Representative Diego Hernandez (D-Portland) will be resigning his seat in the Oregon Legislature.

Representative Hernandez faced many calls for his resignation -- many within his own party -- and an expulsion vote on the House Floor this week. Insiders were questioning whether there were enough votes for his expulsion. The Oregon Constitution requires 2/3 or 40 votes to expel a member.

His resignation creates a vacancy which will be filled by appointment by the Multnomah County Commissioners, from a list of three to five nominees sent to them by the local Democratic Party Precinct Committee Persons.
