His First Squeeze isn't the only one of this pair with ethics issues. He gave the recently-admitted felon an office in the state capital, from which it appears that she conducted her "green energy" consulting business, using her title of "Energy Advisor to the Governor". In other words, she was effectively functioning as a lobbyist, and Oregon's Retread governor was well aware of that. Nonetheless, he falsified a document that's required to be sent to the Ethics Commission. The news website, GoLocalPDX, published the document on Saturday, October 25. The document is here. To date, no other media outlet appears to have been willing to mention that particular transgression.
In a Statement of Economic Interests document obtained by GoLocalPDX and filed with the Oregon Ethics Commission, Kitzhaber stated that his household received income from two companies, Energy Foundation and Resource Media, that had contracted with Hayes' consulting firm E3 Strategies.
But under a section that required him to disclose “any compensated lobbyist who was associated with a business with which you or a member or your household was associated during 2013” Kitzhaber simply put “N/A” or not applicable.
That is an outright, and intentional, lie.
Not to worry, Portland voters will re-elect him. He's a Democratic, after all. He's just running down the clock. Because he's all about integrity.
