State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says he doesn't believe a scandal surrounding a top state lawmaker will tarnish the party.  Matt Wingard, a Republican House Member from Wilsonville announced yesterday he would not seek re-election, after admitting to a sexual relationship with a younger aide who was on his payroll.  Conger received $1000 in campaign money from Wingard and decided to donate that money to the Education Foundation for Bend La Pine Schools.  Wingard first entered politics to champion education reform in Oregon and Conger says that focus played a role in his decision to donate the campaign money to the local schools.  “It actually was.  He certainly said that when he served on the education committee, and I served on that committee. He was keenly interested in education issues, and given the circumstances that came up, somehow seemed appropriate."  The Republican Party can run a candidate to fill the vacant seat in the November election.
