Wilsonville, OR – Today, the Oregon Republican Party issued a statement after the Oregon Government Ethics Commission’s investigation into possible ethics violations by Governor Brown was delayed.
“Following in the footsteps of Kate Brown’s predecessor, disgraced ex-Governor John Kitzhaber, Governor Brown’s ethics problems are being delayed until after the election, robbing voters of the opportunity to make an informed decision,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier. “If Brown was truly innocent, she would want to clear her name as quickly as possible. Instead, Brown has found a way to hide the bad news, along with its video corroboration, until after election day – just as she’s tried to do with the K-12 school report cards and her legislative agenda. Voters should be outraged by this pattern of behavior and the lack of transparency.”
“It’s increasingly looking like the Governor is trying to ‘pull a Kitzhaber’ to get re-elected and actively avoiding political consequences for her wrongdoing,” added Chair Bill Currier. “Voter’s can prevent all of this by getting their ballots in and electing Knute Buehler next Tuesday.”
The Oregon Republican Party is the state’s arm of the Republican National Committee. Its Chairman and officers are dedicated to promoting Republican principles within the state of Oregon and to improving the lives and livelihoods of Oregon’s working families through economic freedom and equal protection under the law.
