Rep. Rob Nosse gets hazed on Oregon House floor

by Rep. Bill Post

Today I was a part of an old tradition in the Oregon House: hazing a freshman. Thankfully it wasn’t me that was the victim. I did however jump into the hazing itself. Rep. Rob Nosse did not know what was coming. He was the carrier of a simple word change bill about electrologists. What he got was 40 minutes of some very funny questions about the bill that mainly centered on body art (tattoos) and hair loss. I decided to jump in and challenge him on why I might be a victim in the process. It was good fun and I love some of these traditions of the legislature.
