Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler allegedly pepper-sprayed an individual who accosted him Sunday evening as he was leaving a restaurant where he was dining out. The individual allegedly was angry about Wheeler’s decision to eat out during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a police report, which was made public Monday night.

According to the police report, Wheeler was leaving McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in Southwest Portland with the former Mayor of Portland Sam Adams when he was followed to his vehicle.

According to the report the pair had been eating in an outdoor tent and in Multnomah County outdoor dining is authorized, as long as restaurants operate below capacity.

The man allegedly videotaped the interaction. According to the report, the mayor said he had warned the man that he was carrying pepper spray, telling him to “back off’ before spraying in the eyes.

According to news reports the incident is being investigated.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
