It started hours ago. Reporters and later a phalanx of cops began swarming John Kitzhaber’s Southwest Portland home.

KATU reporter Kyle Iboshi seemed to be taking point on the stake out.

No Title

No answer at Governor Kitzhaber’s door. Haven’t seen anyone come or go from Portland home.

Then he started counting cop cars.

No Title

Three deputies & trooper just arrived outside Governor Kitzhaber’s home.

And counted:

No Title

Fifth police officer just arrived at Gov. Kitzhaber’s home….

Then came the State Police security detail:

No Title

Governor Kitzhaber’s security detail just arrived at his house

And more cops:

No Title

The cops did a valet shuffle:

No Title

Governor’s security detail reshuffled cars but no sign of Gov. Kitzhaber at his SW Portland home

And the Governor’s still not home.
