Good grief, I gotta buy more popcorn! Republican candidate for governor Dennis Richardson has filed a federal complaint against incumbent Democratic John Kitzhaber and his First Squeeze, requesting a federal investigation into their activities. These would be felonies, punishable with fines of a million dollars and/or 30 years in prison.
This is unprecedented in Oregon history.
Of course, Johnny's First Squeeze has already confessed to felonies, but the larger question is: since Johnny set her up with an office from which she ran her "private business" while cementing Johnny's resistance to oil and gas terminals, did the two of them use office for personal gain? Darn, I never thought we'd see the day, here in Oregon, where Porkland politicians just might be looking at serious prison time. Chicago/Illinois, which appears to be the Porkland/Oregon model, actually has some four governors in prison at the moment, along with a few Chicago aldermen.
That simply has never, ever happened in the history of the state of Oregon; nobody - not even an admitted child rapist - ever faces any possibility of punishment of any sort, let alone actual prison time and financial losses. Understandably, Porkland Lefties are wetting their collective pants over this development. Their strategery is to attempt to demonize Richardson (as though they haven't been doing that all along). They prefer admitted felons and "politically correct" Democratics to a guy who once said something 20+ years ago that they didn't like.
Because, you know - that makes him a nutball. Felons are fine, since they're all Democratics.
This is too good; I'm thinking of doing some script-writing and pushing a short television drama based on it all.
