Corruption in the Governor’s Mansion in Oregon is nothing new. Indeed, the state’s current Governor, Kate Brown, only took office when she did because her predecessor was forced to resign due to corruption charges.
So revelations of her Administration being corrupt shouldn’t be much of a surprise, and are plentiful.
A recent report from Forbes lays out the corruption charges against her.
And just today Project Veritas released a video in which an undercover journalist records one of Brown’s former campaign managers confirming the claims of corruption against her.
In the bombshell video, Michael Kolenc, who served as Brown’s campaign manager in 2016, openly discusses shady, and possibly illegal activities he observed while working for Brown.
The first major revelation is that Brown likely broke Oregon election law by having her state-funded office direct campaign activities. Kolenc alludes to the fact that Brown violated that law when her Chief of Staff got him fired.
KOLENC: “Well, yeah, the government side can’t direct the campaign side, which is what was happening.”
JOURNALIST: “How so?”
KOLENC: “Well, the [Governor’s] chief of staff is the one who got me fired.”
When asked about if the Governor is aware of these potential violations, Kolenc asserts that she “had to have known.”
Kolenc also divulged into corrupt actions by Brown in order to monetarily benefit herself. He talked about a “quid-pro-quo” deal with Comcast in which Brown wrote a letter in favor of a controversial merger with Time Warner Cable in return for $10,000 in campaign contributions. Kolenc mistakenly claims she received $100,000, instead of $10,000.
KOLENC: “It was something in 20– it was something earlier in her tenure, but she had written a letter for Comcast and they gave her like $100,000 check or something. And it was just like, it didn’t look good, and it shouldn’t look good. She didn’t do anything illegal, but the perception that it’s a quid-pro-quo, like I’m going to write a letter of support for something, and you’re going to write me a $100,000 check, it doesn’t look good.”
JOURNALIST: “Oh, she did that?”
KOLENC: “Yes, she absolutely did that, yeah. It was before I got there, but that type of thing, when you’re trying to appeal to working-class people that don’t have that money, they don’t understand it…”
Not only that, but Kolenc believes Brown continues to receive these kinds of contributions in return for favors, calling it “shady as f#$&” and “really discouraging.”

Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION
— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
