Just wait until Iannarone is elected. For those who think Wheeler is bad ( I am one of those) , we ain't seen nothing yet! Portland is circling the drain, Iannarone will be the sucking sound as Portland goes down the drain.


Sounds like a gang shooting to me someone wanted him dead.


With Hardesy’s approval, no doubt.

Leave Portland to the lawless and the lawless supporters and everyone else should stay away especially if you have children with you. Don't even drive through on the interstate...just go around!
