Clackamas County

Clackamas County commissioners condemned his comments

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Clackamas County commissioners are standing up against hatred and bigotry after Commissioner Mark Shull compared vaccine verifications to atrocities of the Holocaust.

Shull made the statement in a Facebook post.

In a statement the Board of Commissioners said: “We recognize the Facebook post dismissed the horror that the Jewish community and so many others experienced during the Holocaust. We want to be clear that our country and we as commissioners condemn antisemitism, racism and bigotry. Mark Shull’s post does not reflect the values of Clackamas County or this board.”

In June, Shull compared vaccine passports to Jim Crow laws. In January he apologized for social media posts expressing Islamophobic and anti-immigrant views.
