Is the only way to describe today’s ODE editorial. Former Democratic Governor [note how I actually make mention of his party the way big media has not been] raped a 14-year-old girl in 1975, and that makes him a bad person. That’s right folks, Neil Goldschmidt is human filth and garbage. In addition to committing rape in the third degree, Goldschmidt apparently led a life of infidelity. So he has sex with children and he cheats on his wife, yet the ODE thinks it’s important that we remember all the good he’s done over the years? Give me a goddamn break.

Remember Former Republican Senator Bob Packwood’s trouble keeping his lecherous old hands off of his female staff? Was there a call to remember his years of noble public service? No, Packwood was quickly and rightly condemned for acting in such a manner. Goldschmidt should be treated in the same way, condemned and tossed on the scrap heap of history.

As much as I like and respect the Emerald editorial board this year, they really dropped the ball on this one, and might want to reconsider making similar statements in the future lest they find themselves defending even more unscrupulous characters.

    Yeah, I’m fairly amazed at how quickly this went off the front page. The media sure doesn’t have this ADD issue when a national political figure is parking his pecker somewhere he shouldn’t.

    I have found that no one is really covering this in the state. Yesterday some zoo animals got coverage over the likehood of him getting kicked out of the Oregon Bar. The Oregonian, Register-Guard and Emerald all did the obligitory breaking story btu haven’t covered it since. This is a HUGE story. Former governor and mayor involved in a sex scandal with an underage girl while he was mayor!!! This should be running for the next three weeks.
