Portland Marathon Flashback: Mayor Sam Adams Lets Occupy Rabble Take Over Portland Marathon. Security Concerns? Nope.

Jeff GreggAh memories. It makes you wonder about the leadership of Portland when you think back to the cavalier way in which the City of Portland, ‘lead’ by Sam Adams, allowed the Occupy Portland rabble to take over the space reserved and paid for by the Portland Marathon. 

The City of Portland strong-armed the Marathon folks who sent out an obsequious ‘we love you please don’t hurt us’ press release. But, knowing what we know now about the kinds of people at Occupy, and in light of today’s carnage in Boston, can you imagine a city leader putting all those people who had come for the Marathon at risk? 

Makes you wonder all over again.
