Ex-Governor Neil Goldschmidt has died

By Oregon Campaign Watch

Neil Goldschmidt served as U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Portland Mayor and Governor.  Later in life a scathing investigative report surfaced for which Goldschmidt admitted to abusing a 14-year-old girl.  It forced him to resign from the Education Board and from the Texas Pacific Group.  It also opened up more scandal with a fury over access to the governor’s archived records and also the amount of people who knew about the abuse but did nothing about it.  Neil Goldschmidt died on June 12, 2024, in Portland at his home , from heart failure.
