PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — The United States Department of Justice issued subpoenas Friday for records involving Governor Kitzhaber and First Lady Cylvia Hayes.
Subpoenas were also issued to approximately a dozen agencies – including the governor’s office and at least 14 other people, sources told KOIN 6 News.
The subpoenas seek information related to contracts and payments Hayes received over the past four years.
Sources who spoke under a promise of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak about the federal investigation told KOIN 6 News investigators believe Hayes received payments that she did not report to the state or on her taxes.
They are trying to determine if she did work for outside companies without reporting that she was doing work for those companies.
In addition to contracts, the feds are seeking email, phone logs, documents and visitors logs involving Hayes and nearly a dozen businesses and advocacy groups that Hayes had contact with, according to these sources.

In a statement, Geri Baden, the spokesperson for the US Attorney’s Office, said, “The U.S. Attorney’s Office does not comment regarding on-going criminal investigations.
“Public corruption investigations are extremely important because such allegations – if proven true – strike at the very core of our government’s ability to serve the people of this state and this country.
“Under federal law, agents must ensure that any such investigation occurs in a thorough and legally appropriate manner. Federal law also requires the FBI to conduct such investigations out of the public eye to ensure a fair process that doesn’t impact a person’s reputation should the allegations be proven false. Likewise, the U.S. Attorney’s Office is committed to protecting a person’s Constitutional right to an impartial judicial process should the investigation lead to that end.”
Вот так. Человек в четвертый раз был избран Губернатором штата и… погорел.
