I'm beginning to think the former Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber, who resigned earlier this year in disgrace over ethics issue with his fiancee, is in serious need of a mental health assessment.
Police were called to an Oregon landfill on Feb. 20 after the state's former Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) and his fiancee were spotted there dumping trash amid a federal investigation surrounding his time in office, The Oregonian newspaper reported on Friday.
Kitzhaber and his fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, had rarely been seen in public since his resignation on Feb. 18 when the couple left Salem, Ore., the paper reported.
Both Kitzhaber and Hayes have been the subjects of a federal investigation, the Oregonian reported.
On Feb. 20, the couple was seen at the Knott Landfill near Bend, Ore. throwing away trash, the director of the Deschutes County Solid Waste Department told the Oregonian.
Due to a credit card processing error, the landfill's system was reportedly locked and a supervisor was forced to reset it. However, during the incident, law enforcement officials were alerted and deputies from the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office arrived at the landfill, the paper reported.
You're under federal investigation...and you go to a landfill to dump trash in full view of everyone. The guy needs help, in all seriousness, and I hope he gets what he needs. If he really is this brazen, well, the law will certainly have a lot more questions for him now.
