Thursday, May 17, 2012
OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- A Portland man whose disruptive behavior prompted his removal from a county commissioners meeting has won a 9 mm Glock pistol in a campaign fundraiser held by a candidate who is trying for a seat on the board.
The Oregonian newspaper reports (http://is.gd/LR5uHo ) a sheriff's deputy forcibly ejected 61-year-old Richard Langdon at last month's meeting of the Clackamas Board of County Commissioners. On Tuesday, he won the pistol in a fundraiser held by Tootie Smith, a former state representative and longtime Second Amendment activist.
Smith sold raffle tickets for $5 and raised about $3,000. She finished second in Tuesday's primary, advancing to a November runoff.
To obtain his Glock, Langdon must fill out paperwork to undergo a background check.
