A registered sex offender’s appearance at the just-ended Portland “Red House on Mississippi” eviction blockade appears to have left some activists uncomfortable.

“Gotta be honest, I’m incredibly uncomfortable with Micah having a leadership role at RHED,” Zucchini tweeted Sunday, using the acronym for the Antifa-led protest, Red House Eviction Defense. “I’ll obv(iously) default to Black leadership on this, but I’m not gonna hold back on vocalizing how incredibly violating this feels to me as a survivor of sexual assault.”

In 2018, Rhodes pleaded guilty to sexual abuse charges for having illicit sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl in Washington County and a 17-year-old boy in Multnomah County in 2014 and 2015, according to The Associated Press and other news outlets.

As part of the plea deal, he avoided prison in exchange for a sentence of probation with orders to stay away from anyone under 18.

Months later Rhodes was arrested on charges of violating probation for having contact with a 15-year-old boy during a protest outside an ICE facility in Portland, according to reports.

A judge sentenced him to two years in prison. He was released five months ago.

Online records show Rhodes registered as a sex offender in August.

Conservative Canadian news outlet The Post Millennial first reported on Rhodes Friday and also reported that he couldn’t be reached for comment.
