Replacement Oregon governor Kate Brown (D-Minnesota) went to an Oregon State basketball game (which is likely why Oregon lost) using campaign funds.
SALEM — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown was there when the University of Oregon men’s basketball team lost its NCAA Final Four match against the University of North Carolina by one point.
Gov. Brown left an event at the Oregon Veterans’ Home in Lebanon Friday afternoon in order to catch her flight to the game, which was held Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.
According to the Governor’s Office, the trip was paid for by the governor’s campaign. Gov. Brown is running for reelection next year.
A spokesman for the governor referred questions about the governor’s attendance to her campaign, and questions about the costs of having her security detail travel with her to the Oregon State Police, which employs the governor’s dignitary protection unit.
“I am so proud of my Ducks,” Brown told KOIN news in an interview posted to the station’s YouTube channel Saturday night. “They did an amazing job tonight. They are an incredible team, and I just love watching them, and Oregon should be proud of our Oregon Ducks tonight.”
"My"? "Our"? Go back home, Kate - and take east-coaster Tina Kotek with you. We don't need you easterners here. You've screwed up your own states, and now you're here to screw up ours. Get out of here!
