Portland Area Liberal Lawmakers Send Post-Election Condolence Letter

Not much to say about this except that the Multnomah County Commissioners’ heads are wedged so far in their deep, recessed ‘brains’  they don’t understand  there’s a huge contingent out there who are not disconsolate at all that Trump is president.

The letter reads:

A Statement from the Board of County Commissioners

Yesterday, our Multnomah County Crisis Line received calls from people distraught about the election and afraid of losing benefits, resources and their jobs. Others are anxious because they were born in another country and came here to escape war, political persecution or economic distress. Still others fear that there will be a resurgence of institutional racism and exclusion.

As the Board of Commissioners, we want to acknowledge those concerns and say that we are committed to the pursuit of a more equitable, inclusive and fair community. Multnomah County welcomes and serves residents and visitors without regard to race, origin, religious, income, gender, sexual orientation or immigration status. 

And it was signed by Deborah Kafoury, Jules Bailey, Loretta Smith, Judy Shiprack, and Diane McKeel.

Far left Oregon candidate Deborah Kafoury files complaint after being identified as pro life

Projection? Deborah Kafoury complains a voter guide ID’ing her as pro life is a political dirty trick

HT Bruce McCain


Deborah Kafoury is a member of one of Oregon’s most visible political clans. For decades, Steve, Greg, Gretchen, Deborah and a few more I have forgotten, have represented the low hanging fruit on the far left side of Oregon’s political family tree.

The family is more prolific than the Bushes. It’s more numerous than Bill Clinton’s sexual conquests. The Kennedy clan’s far left piety has nothing on the Kafoury church of the far left.

Kafoury clan members grow up believing a government job is their birth right.

One thing the Kafoury clan would never be confused of being is in any way standing for traditional family values–except theirs, that is. 

Abortion on demand for all 41 weeks of pregnancy? Hell yes. 

A typo in a family friendly voters guide by the Oregon Family Council, however, has the candidate for Multnomah County Chair upset and running to the reliably sympathetic media for help.

The guide identifies Kafoury as being pro life. She fears if voters come to believe she might possibly have respect for the life of a baby they’ll have no respect for her.  Willamette Week reports she’s now complained to state elections officials,

“With voters having ballots in hand,” writes Jillian Schoene, Kafoury’s campaign manager, “the intent here is clear: falsely represent Ms. Kafoury’s position on key issues that put her in direct conflict with the voters of Multnomah County, thus harming her candidacy for chair.”

The elections commission has told Kafoury it has no jurisdiction over the issue but the courts do, telling Willamette Week,

“ORS 260.532 requires an aggrieved party to pursue their claim in court,” writes Alicia J. Cox of the elections division. “It is not a statute enforced through our office.”

Kafoury calls the typo a political dirty trick considering voters already have their ballots in hand. Kafoury’s pro abortion stance is the only mistake on the voter guide. The Oregon Family Council says it did not make the mistake on purpose. 

It sounds like Deborah Kafoury herself is perhaps the biggest mistake on the voters guide.
