Major Watchdog Group Takes Down Oregon Governor
James O'Keefe and Project Veritas have done it again. James has exposed the graft and conflict of interest that goes on in the statehouse in Oregon.
Governor Kate Brown is now accused of using state resources in her current campaign for governor. But, that's not all folks. Her former chief of staff was forced to resign after she failed to tell anyone that she owned a company that got a huge contract from the state. Her present chief of staff is paid by the taxpayers as she works on Brown's campaign.
O'Keefe learned all about the graft from Kate Brown’s former campaign manager, Michael Kolenc. Kolenc was fired after he approached Brown about the graft and corruption within her campaign.
Ironically, Brown was the Secretary of State of Oregon when she had to replace former Governor John Kitzhaber, who resigned under a dark cloud of corruption and pay-for-play schemes.
Kolenc also goes on to talk about how Brown is “A really awful manager of people, operations and structures. She’s just not a good manager, and she doesn’t hire, she doesn’t hire good managers. So that’s like one of her, a fundamental problem that she has,” and how governor Brown takes payoffs in exchange for favors “Oh, it’s 100% going on, it’s 100% going on. It’s really discouraging…”
Kolenc also speaks of a previously reported scandal involving Governor Brown’s former chief of staff, Kristen Leonard, who did not disclose a potential conflict of interest regarding a state government contract held by a company she owns.
Kolenc sums it up by saying Kate Brown and her entire campaign and tenure as governor as “shady as f**k” and and that generally nobody discloses “low-level graft, low-level corruption.”
Brown is only a couple of points ahead of her rival, with a lot of undecideds. This may help them decide.
