    I find it amusing that the Guv...on his way out...complains about what the media did to him. Hey...he's a public figure, he should expect the media attention. And if he thinks he's innocent, he should have the courage to stand up for himself and say, "Damn the media." Evidently, he doesn't think he's innocent.

    btw, I traded this view...on the few days I could actually SEE this view...

    ...with this view...which I can see 300+ days a year.

    This woman will soon become the first openly bisexual governor in American history - The Washington Post

    It'll be fun to see what type of plumbing she brings to the governor's parties!

    In that picture, the closer you get to the camera, the worse it looks.

    Kitz needs to step down, but I doubt that he will until formal charges are brought and his situation becomes indefensible. His girlfriend is a real piece of work. Was paid $5000 by an immigrant to marry him so he could stay in the country. Was a party to a plan to build a big pot farm in WA long before pot was legal there. Used her position as Kitz's girlfriend to influence state policy in such a way as to benefit her employer. Kits needs to step down TODAY.
    Happy to be wrong. See ya later Kitz!!!!

    Does anyone have an opinion on his successor Kate Brown?

    I know very little about her other than about every media outlet reporting that she is bisexual. I assume that she has some accomplishments beside this.

    you know what's really sleazy here, is that this stuff came to light before the election, Kitz denied it and the debate moderator didn't press him to answer question about it, and the media covered up the story. they released the green card marriage as a smoke screen to cover up the many ethics violations they committed.

    Conservative host Lars Larson asked to be on the moderator panel on the debates and they told him "no we don't need you asking the governor any questions" even Portlands mayor and public works commissioner will come on his show, but Kitz is protected by the media. what seriously needs to be reviewed is how candidates and debates are covered in the media, this scandal should've been on every station the week running up to the election.

    this is truly the fox watching the henhouse, I am for mandated equal coverage for both candidates on elections..

    as an addendum, I honestly believe the democratic administration kept the FBI off of Kitz and waited until after a D was elected in 2014 to announce an investigation.

    I don't like her, she's an urban liberal, I'm a traditional rural progressive, and from that viewpoint urban liberals are worse then conservatives on many things...
