Bob Ball, the Pearl District real estate developer, targeted
by Sam Adams supporters for raising questions in 2007 about Adams' relationship with an 18-year-old legislative intern named Beau Breedlove, has been an interested bystander during the Adams investigation. According to a list of those people Attorney General John Kroger's investigators interviewed, Ball was among the first.
Here's what Ball had to say about the report
Kroger released this morning.
On the report:
As a Portlander, I am pleased and relieved that the Attorney General's investigation has now been concluded. I'm hopeful that, as a community, we can quickly put this unfortunate incident behind us and get on with the business of addressing the critical issues confronting the city during these difficult economic times.
On the content of the report:
I believe it would not be appropriate for me to comment on any aspect of the Attorney General's report. Although I was interviewed by the State's investigators, I have no personal knowledge of any other facts they uncovered nor am I aware of the reasoning used by the Attorney General's staff in arriving at their conclusions. It's difficult to imagine how anything I would have to say about the report could contribute in to a constructive dialogue over the issues involved.
