Kitzhaber meltdown underway

Well it hasn’t been a good day for Oregon’s Gov. John Kitzhaber (D). Willamette Week started the day with more tough articles asking the tough questions that Kitzhaber won’t answer: Climate, Changed, Kitzhaber Hired Ally Who Arranged Cylvia Hayes’ Fellowship, Making Him Highest-Paid Aide, and Hands Off by Nigel Jaquiss and Yes, Virginia, There is a Scandal by Anna Walters.

And then this afternoon the Oregonian Editorial Board called for Kitzhaber to resign!

It must have all been too much for the First Couple – a tweet from the Oregonian a short while ago alerted us that “Cylvia Hayes’ first lady page disappears from John Kitzhaber’s state web site.” Sure enough, when we try her link it now tells us we have to login to the server [Update: now First Lady page is just gone]. The Oregonian’s Laura Gunderson has a short article on the disappearance.

If the disappearance of First Lady Cylvia Hayes web page has lowered your “happiness index”, then here’s a link you can use to remember the good ol’ days, a screen print from back in December.
