WILL DR. MONICA WEHBY'S ALLEGED BOYFRIEND BE INVESTIGATED FOR HIS CAMPAIGN DONATIONS TO A POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE?

 

DEMOCRATS ARE CALLING FOR A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO WHETHER ANDREW MILLER'S 30 THOUSAND DOLLAR DONATION TO AN ANTI-CONGER PAC (PACK) BROKE ELECTION RULES. THERE CAN BE NO COORDINATION BETWEEN A PAC AND A CANDIDATE'S CAMPAIGN.

 

 

KBND NEWS SPOKE TO JASON CONGER WHEN THE "OREGON ORACLE" FIRST BROKE THIS STORY ABOUT THREE WEEKS AGO.

"It's a little far-fetched to think that someone who co-habitates with the candidate and is aware of everything that's going on in the campaign doesn't have some level of coordination."

 

BOTH DR. MONICA WEHBY AND ANDREW MILLER HAVE TOLD KBND NEWS THEY ARE JUST FRIENDS AND WEHBY'S CAMPAIGN MANAGER SAYS HE CANNOT "CLARIFY" THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO.

 

CONGER SAYS THE BIGGEST ISSUE IS THE POTENTIAL COORDINATION BETWEEN WEHBY AND MILLER, BUT THERE'S ANOTHER POSSIBLE VIOLATION:

 

"The PAC is also structured in such a way that allows unlimited contributions- and in order to do that it has to allow for multiple campaigns- and clearly it is not - the ads are attacking me- the name of the pac is entirely unique to this race and to me- i think it's  'if he votes this way in Salem how will he vote in congress?' There is only one legislator in Oregon running for congress. 

 

 

MEANTIME- WEHBY'S CAMPAIGN HAS CRITICIZED CONGER FOR BEING FRIENDS WITH THE HEAD OF "OREGON RIGHT TO LIFE" A PAC THAT HAS ENDORSED CONGER.

 

KBND NEWS ASKED CONGER ABOUT HIS COMMUNICATION WITH GAYLE ATTEBERRY. 

 

"Oregon Right to Life lobbies from time to time- in the capitol and I've been in their office- but since the race began - I believe I only talked to Gayle once- it was at a conference where I was speaking and she was too- and I said 'Hi Gayle- how are you? (laughs) *not* talking and coordinating on how should be do our attack strategy?..."

 

 

CONGER FEARS THAT NO MATTER WHO WINS THE PRIMARY -THESE ALLEGEGATIONS WILL HURT THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN HIS OR HER BID AGAINST U.S. SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY.
