Kitzhaber Out

The governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber, has reportedly resigned. The reason is that his fiance, a member of his energy task force, was getting tens of thousands of dollar of undisclosed consulting fees from energy interests. You can read the details here. This is all from “clean energy” concerns, by the way, including the involvement of liberal billionaire Tom Steyer.

Keep this in mind the next time someone starts ranting about the Koch Brothers and evil oil money.

    The ‘keep Portland weird’ people are just jealous because the’re borderline republicans compared to the folks in Eugene. I lived there for a year, and it was a real eye opener.

    I think this a tip of the iceberg though. One of these days, someone’s going to win a Pulitzer reporting on all the corruption involved with alternative energy.
