Gov. John Kitzhaber's Office Sought To Destroy Thousands of His Emails

Records show state bureaucrats refused to carry out the request

Gov. John Kitzhaber's office last week requested state officials destroy thousands of records in the governor's personal email accounts, according to records obtained by WW and 101.9 KINK/FM News 101 KXL.

The request came as investigations into allegations of influence-peddling involving Kitzhaber and first lady Cylvia Hayes were intensifying.
