Richardson trying to pump up his campaign against Gov. Kitzhaber…with demand letter to US Attorney to investigate “corruption”
Badly behind in the polls, Jackson County Representative Dennis Richardson is trying to turn up the heat on Governor John Kitzhaber and First Lady Cylvia Hayes, accusing them of a number of criminal acts. Richardson wrote a demand letter to the U.S. Federal Attorney for Oregon to investigate the pair with a list of serious sounding criminal charges, which if proven, could put somebody in prison for a long time.
Kitzhaber’s campaign chief called the demand letter a waste of the U.S. Attorney’s time and taxpayer dollars with what is obviously a political stunt. Richardson denied that it’s a stunt but rather an attempt to follow through on the public’s right to know what their governor has been up to.
