Sgt. Scott Westerman, head of the Portland police union, says Adams' lies are unacceptable despite the announcement today by Attorney General John Kroger that he will not prosecute the mayor.
"We don't accept a police officer lying in the course of their duties," Westerman says. "I'm not understanding why we should accept it from our politicians."
The police union called for Adams to resign when Adams admitted in January that he lied repeatedly about his affair with Beau Breedlove. But Westerman says the union will not take an active role in an Adams recall.
"We will allow our membership that lives in the city of Portland to vote as they see fit (in a recall)," Westerman says.
