The Feds have subpoenaed ALL RECORDS–everything–having to do with Governor John Kitzhaber and girlfriend Cylvia Hayes’ green agenda.
A federal probe is no joke. It just got real for Kitzhaber and Hayes. Along with the Oregon State Attorney General’s probe and an ethics probe (which is technically suspended while waiting for the resolution to the AG’s probe), the Federal probe can’t be managed by Kitzhaber, as he’s clearly tried to do in the others, as well as the media.
Here are the big take aways from news the Department of Justice’s U.S. Attorney in Oregon has subpoenaed the soon-to-be former Governor and his girlfriend. Read the document for yourself below (HT Willamette Week).
- The document seeks records on Oregon State credit cards to determine if Cylvia Hayes used them.
- It seeks all records–all–pertaining to Cylvia’s energy activity.
- All visitor records at Mahonia Hall and at the Governor’s Office.
- Hayes’ bids for government programs.
Here are more revelations and tid bits since Friday’s resignation announcement:
- KXL reports Kitzhaber continued to demand his emails be destroyed AFTER the State Investigation was announced. This shows an arrogance and entitled attitude and a misunderstanding of the Oregon Public Records Law which covers even Kitzhaber’s ‘private’ emails– if he uses his email to do state business. Kitzhaber does.
- KXL reports two attorneys inside the governor’s office APPROVED destroying the documents.
- Willamette Week’s Nigel Jacquiss reports four layers of government refused to destroy the documents.
- The Kitzhaber demand to destroy documents came the DAY BEFORE he was to meet with the Attorney General, presumably to attempt to head off her investigation.
- KXL and Willamette Week report Kitzhaber just tried AGAIN LAST WEEK to get his emails destroyed. It is against the law to destroy documents if you think they’ll be used in an investigation.
In short, he’s in trouble. Check out the subpoena.
