Following a Labor Day speech John Kitzhaber is confronted on his sealed divorce records, a forthcoming marriage to his taxpayer paid live in girlfriend, and his Billion dollar Cover Oregon Obamacare nightmare.
Dateline Labor Day, Monday, September 1, 2014 – Portland Oregon: On a beautiful late summer day at Oaks Park Amusement Park, this Citizen Journalist sits through a speech of platitudes delivered by the sitting Governor John Kitzhaber. Kitzhaber is running for a forth term, despite having completely mismanaged Oregon’s Billion Dollar Obamacare debacle, which failed to sign up a single person. Kitzhaber also failed to mention his forthcoming marriage to his taxpayer paid for, live-in girlfriend Cylvia Hayes. Many voters feel his marriage is to detract from the real issues in the campaign. Fed up, I engage “Uncle Jed,” as he is affectionately known to his constituency-victims, with a few questions. In pursuit of the limo a cameo appearance is made by KOIN Local 6 Anchor Ken Bodie. Bodie exemplifies the mainstream in his glad handling of KItz, and failure to engage him on any of the difficult issues of the campaign.
