Ethics Complaint Filed Against Kitzhaber, Hayes

(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Republican Party is alleging that Governor John Kitzhaber and his fiancee have violated state ethics laws.  KOIN-TV reports Kitzhaber and first lady Cylvia Hayes, who's also an adviser to the governor, are accused of conflict-of-interest transactions, benefiting from public contracts, and using buildings for personal and financial gain.  Earlier this week, Kitzhaber asked the state ethics commission to issue a formal opinion on Hayes' work in the governor's office and on her contracts with three nonprofit organizations.  The governor is running for re-election against GOP challenger, state Representative Dennis Richardson.
