Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber got one hell of an October surprise, as his fiance tearfully admitted Thursday to having a green-card marriage to an 18-year-old Ethiopian immigrant. The stunning admission comes after an alternative newspaper first reported that Cylvia Hayes – who despite being engaged goes by the title “first lady” in the state – had been married, and divorced, three times before. Two of those were known. But the Democratic governor to whom she’s engaged, and the public, apparently didn’t know about the third.
This comes as absolutely no surprise to Conservative Oregonians (both of us!). Doctor John has been making "bad choices" during his entire political career.
Five Grand? He should be flattered; his probably-no-longer-to-be wife can honestly claim that she is worth more than he is.
From Fox Business News:
In the unusually spirited debate, [Kitzhaber's Republican opponent for the Gubenatorial office, State Representativer Dennis] Richardson offered his sharpest critique yet of Kitzhaber in a final push to become Oregon's first Republican governor in nearly three decades. He said Kitzhaber has presided over the "single-most inept and unethical administration in the history of the state of Oregon."
PS: You don't need to look up the word schadenfreude. This is it.
