The State has cleared and reinstated four Department of Energy workers for alleged misconduct. It was believed the employees were steering government contracts toward the firm where Governor Kitzhaber's partner, Cylvia Hayes worked. These workers have been on paid administrative leave since last August.

The investigation wrapped up last December, but there were different decisions on what should be down. Nigel Jaquiss is a reporter with a Portland weekly covering the story: “What's really interesting is our information shows the DOE recommended these workers be fired, and then Governor Kulongoski had a retired judge do an independent review and he thought they should be fired. And this governor, Governor Kitzhaber brought in an independent lawyer and he recommended they be reinstated than fired.” The employees were told Wednesday they were cleared to return to work today and none of them will face any disciplinary actions.
