Meanwhile, out in Oregon: “Gov. John Kitzhaber has retained prominent Portland criminal defense lawyer Janet Hoffman to represent him.”
Yesterday, the state’s attorney general ordered Cylvia Hayes, the fiancee of Gov. Kitzhaber, to turn over emails from her personal accounts relating to state business to media: ”In an order under the state public records law, Rosenblum rejected Hayes’ claims that she was an honorary first lady with no duty to produce the emails.”
And Evidence is mounting that the governor and his fiance knew precisely how damaging some of their e-mails could be: “Kitzhaber’s office last week requested state officials destroy thousands of records in the governor’s personal email accounts, according to records obtained by WW and 101.9 KINK/FM News 101 KXL.”
Here’s the smoking gun that caused Kitzhaber’s allies to abandon him: “A new batch of emails released Friday show Cylvia Hayes directed state employees how to implement a new policy while she was being paid $25,000 by an advocacy group to promote it.”
Things are looking down for the governor.
