The thousands of emails that former Oregon governor Retread tried to have deleted from state servers continue to inform. Patty McCaig, Retread's "most trusted political adviser" sent an invoice for $8500 to his campaign fund for "work" performed in January. Not bad for a gal with little education:
McCaig has no education beyond a high school diploma, and was not even licensed as a lobbyist, but she was very well connected by marriage, and that was all it took for her to become wealthy and powerful.
McCaig married Tom Walsh, of Walsh Construction, back in the day when Neil Goldschmidt was killing the Mt. Hood Freeway in favor of building a light rail line to suburban Gresham, a contract landed by Walsh Construction. This has been mentioned here several times in the past, but it never hurts to refresh one's memory. The Goldschmidt cabal continues.
