No politician wants to be viewed as soft on crime.
But Gov. Ted Kulongoski,
in an exit interview with us earlier this month, made the impolitic observation in the video clip below that this state has gone too far in prison building
. He also talked about his next career and how he would like to work on corrections issues. (Hint-turn up the volume.)
Our Q & A with Kulongoski will be in the Jan. 5 print issue of WW, timed to the end of the two-term Democratic governor's lengthy career in public office the following week. Between now and then, we'll be running more clips from the interview.
