Protest Shooting Victim Worked For Hardesty Campaign

(Portland, OR) -- The woman who was killed in a shooting Saturday night during a demonstration at Normandale Park in Portland also worked on City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty's campaign. Hardesty says the suspect, 43-year-old Benjamin Smith, is known to have supremacist sympathies. He has a history of violence against activists, including Hardesty. June Knightly helped collect signatures for Hardesty's re-election. Hardesty says she's pausing her campaign to review safety protocols and that the shooting has a chilling effect on civic engagement.
