Speaking with one verified source, who has informed me that Kate Brown is mulling over a run for Oregon Senator Ron Wyden’s seat, upon his rumored retirement at the end of his term in 2022. Wyden, who is considering a run for the Governor’s office at the same time, thus allowing the same ole same ole to run our state into the ground. When will people realize it is not the four year or eight year President’s who are the problem it is the 20 and 30 Senators and Representatives that are the problem in our political structure today? Kate Brown has more than 900k in her war chest of election money, even though she cannot run for re-election. She is taking donations to her compaign then in turn supporting other candidates and bill lobbying with that money, technically it is legal in Oregon, but essentially it is money laundering for the Democratic National Committee or even the Oregon Democratic Party.
With most of her donations coming from Nike, Bloomberg, and pro cap and trade entities and it is not hard to see why she is backing bills that includes raising the taxes on cigarettes yet again to pay for healthcare, and another bill that opposes limits on campaign donations (she wants more money.) She received donations from the states major utility companies, PacifiCorp, Portland General Electric, NW Natural and CenturyLink, who each in their own respects have a vested interest in the regulations Kate Brown may or may not put into place.
Kate Brown took 10k from Trillium Community Health Plan, which is a major Medicaid contract agency within the state and stands to make even more money with the bills Kate Brown is backing. The Motor Vehicle Services Corp, Also donated 10k, has been a contractor with the Oregon Department of Transportation, and as such directly benefits from any laws that increase funding for public projects that Brown signs. Oregon Health & Science University is another major donor, who directly benefits from both the future bills that Brown is endorsing and will sign into law if passed, but also the fact that illegal aliens are allowed to receive medical care in Oregon by order of the Governor through her sanctuary status quid pro quo.
With Brown essentially taking money from donors for her campaign, the acting as a bank and dolling out that money to her “worthy causes” which seems to be other donors or those linked to other donors, the system is rife with ethical conflict, and as a writer who has filed complaints with the state ethics board, it would appear on the surface that Brown may have a problem in the future with ethics, but as for now she is just acting as a sort bank for the Oregon Democratic Party.
