“Достали!…” — ©

Еще два дня назад Губернатор Китцхабер уверял орегонцев, что в отставку он уходить не собирается. Сегодня, несмотря на все это, Губернатор подал в отставку.

Слухи о его невесте его достали.

SALEM — Embattled Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber on Friday announced his resignation amid allegations his fiancée used her relationship with him to enrich herself.

Kitzhaber, who has served in political roles for nearly 40 years and was just re-elected to a historic fourth gubernatorial term in November, faced calls to resign by the leaders of his own party and appeared to have virtually no support in state government circles.

The governor’s resignation will take effect Wednesday, Feb. 18 at 10 a.m.

The decision capped a wild week in Oregon politics. Kitzhaber seemed poised to step down, then changed his mind, but ultimately bowed to calls from legislative leaders that he quit.

His resignation letter read, in part, “It is not in my nature to walk away from a job I have undertaken – it is to stand and fight for the cause. For that reason I apologize to all those people who gave of their faith, time, energy and resources to elect me to a fourth term last year and who have supported me over the past three decades. I promise you that I will continue to pursue our shared goals and our common cause in another venue.”

The governor, along with his fiancee Cylvia Hayes, have been ensnared in a public corruption scandal over allegations that Hayes used her influence as an energy-related consultant to win lucrative contracts and shape state policy.
