Investigations Concept with Word on Folder.

The Oregonian, OPB and ProPublica joined investigative forces and revealed a tax-funded agency, the Oregon Forest Research Institute, has apparently attempted to influence state policy. It is clearly prohibited by law from doing so.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has called for an audit to investigate. We should add that Erin Isselmann, OFRI’s executive director, says that under her leadership the institute has operated “under the highest ethical standards.”

The call for action by the governor is direct result of the reporting by the news organization to hold government accountable.

Kudos to them.

I hope the Timber Unity crowd reads the ProPublica report. They might see the forest through the trees.


Excellent article at the link provided.

The next such investigatve report should address GOV Brown's ethics in her and her administration's actions, behind the scenes, in how she has handled the crisis in Portland.
