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.”

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
