Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber submitted his resignation Friday.
He met with his senior staff and administration officials before the official announcement, sources with direct knowledge told KOIN 6 News.
The resignation will take effect as of 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015. Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown will become the next governor.
One aspect of this that the MSM has rather predictably been ignoring is that lefty billionaire Tom Steyer’s money is involved in this scandal.
Let’s play another round of “What if a Republican had done this?” Imagine a GOP governor using Koch brothers money in a corruption scandal. Rachel Maddow might pass out on air and HuffPo would cease writing about anything else for days.
The mere mention of the Koch brothers by any member of the media should be met with repeated mentions of Steyer, who spends far more to influence elections than the left’s favorite bogeymen.
