Kulongoski: The Goldschmidt Scandal Almost Made Me Not Run for Reelection


In this clip from our interview with departing Governor Ted Kulongoski,(A fuller version of the interview appears in this week's print version of the paper), he discusses his ambivalence about running for reelection in 2006 because of the loss of Neil Goldschmidt as an advisor. Goldschmidt retreated from public service after the former governor and Portland mayor was found to have abused a girl when she was 14.

Here are links to earlier video excerpts—one where the governor talks about prisons, another where he discusses Iraq, a third where he talks about how the Goldschmidt scandal affected Kulongoski's plans for higher education, another in which he discusses losing his mentor and one in which he discusses the outsized power in this state of public employee unions.
