Far-right group leader wants venue changed in riot case

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Right-wing Patriot Prayer group founder Joey Gibson has requested a venue change for his trial on a riot charge. KOIN-TV reports the law firm representing Gibson filed a motion claiming there is unfair bias against him if the trial is held in Portland, Oregon. The motion issued Monday says a uniform and organized campaign of propaganda has demonized Gibson as a violent, white supremacist. He is one of six men accused of inciting a riot between the Patriot Prayer group and left-leaning antifa outside a Portland pub last year. Two of men who were charged with riot have pleaded guilty and were sentenced.
