Clackamas county, Ore. – A volunteer collecting signatures to recall Oregon Governor Kate Brown is still recovering, after reportedly being attacked and left for dead on road. It allegedly happened Saturday afternoon in Happy Valley on Highway 212 and SE 152nd. The suspect 39-year-old Joshua Thompson reportedly told deputies he did it because he thought they should be working to recall President Trump and not Governor Brown. He was booked into the Clackamas County Jail and faces multiple charges including assault. The recall campaign coordinator tells KXL the petitioner who was attacked was a Good Samaritan who stepped in to stop the suspect from harassing another volunteer. The victim is home from the hospital as of Sunday afternoon, resting with a broken rib, broken nose, and multiple stitches to the front and back of his head. The recall campaign he volunteered for is planning a fundraiser to help the victim, we will share that once it’s available.
