    Oregon Governor Resigns Amid Ethics Scandal

    Another one bites the dust . . . .

    Oregon governor resigns amid ethics scandal

    Eli Saslow
    John Kitzhaber is stepping down at the start of his fourth term as conflict-of-interest charges swirl around how his fiancee benefited in business deals.

    "PORTLAND, Ore. When the end finally came, the most ubiquitous politician in the history of Oregon had all but disappeared from public view.

    Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) retreated from the State Capitol on Friday afternoon and announced his resignation in a letter, completing the sudden unraveling of his political career. Just one month after becoming the first Oregon governor to start a fourth term in office, Kitzhaber became the first to resign because of alleged misconduct, as he and his fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, continue to be investigated for misusing their influence for personal financial gain.
    His resignation will take effect Wednesday, at which point Secretary of State Kate Brown (D) will replace Kitzhaber, becoming the first openly bisexual governor in American history. . ."

    I'm all for alleged criminals being prosecuted. Kitzhaber did the right thing.

    Of course, he's a democrat, and everyone knows that only democratic politicians are caught in ethics scandals.

    A picture of Kate Brown might have made this interesting. As it is, not so much.

    He was a good governor, but he had to go. I'm glad he made the right decision. So now both California and Oregon have Browns for governors.
