This should make taxpayers absolutely furious. Oregon agrees to pay 1.3 million taxpayer’ dollars to settle sex harassment claims because of the bad behavior of elected officials. The bad behavior has been going on for years, and it’s been ignored or even covered up by some of the top officials in Oregon government – all of them members of the Democrat Party, by the way.
Recently, one of the top enablers, Senate President Peter Courtney announced he’s taking 10 days of medical leave. Translation: when the heat gets too hot, Courtney decides to disappear. Now, there’s a profile in courage. Courtney has already payed off one employee with your money for the way she was mistreated in his own office. His chief of staff for a dozen years took early retirement and disappeared. House Speaker Tina Kotek has been silent about the mess. And that million plus dollars already paid, there’s absolutely no guarantee that’s the last of the bills. And if you pay taxes, you’re on the hook for all of it.
All of this in the wonderful, woke, progressive, “me-too”, snowflake, blue state, Democrat Party controlled, People’s Republic of Portlandia
