ITJockIs there such a thing as an old fashioned Democratic sex scandal anymore?
Well there is one playing out in small bits in the Oregonian. It's just not getting large or widespread headlines because 1) The actual sex happened a long time ago and 2) involved democrats, and 3) everyone involved is now old and gray (ewww).
It's only in the news now because the current Multnomah County Sheriff is under review for not reporting it when it happened. Some people are trying to drag the current Governor into it, but so far he's avoided it by walking out whenever it comes up in a press conference.
The bits & pieces that have appeared:
The former governer Goldschmidt had an affair with a 14 year old girl while in office, back in the 80's. He never got caught, but much later paid her a settlement.
The current Sheriff knew about it because he was then a State Trooper and the Gov's official driver. He never told about it because HE was having an affair with the Gov's wife
The current Gov knew about it when he was attorney general, and chose to ignore it because, hey, he was a democrat
