Project Veritas has released undercover video showing a former campaign manager of Oregon Governor Kate Brown admitting widespread mismanagement and violations of campaign law by her office.
Michael Kolenc, who managed Brown’s 2016 campaign, revealed that Brown likely violated campaign laws by coordinating her government office to work on her campaign activities, which is forbidden by Oregon law.
Kolenc: “Well, yeah, the government side can’t direct the campaign side, which is what was happening.”
Project Veritas Journalist: “How so?”
Kolenc: “Well, the [Governor’s] chief of staff is the one who got me fired.”
Additionally, Kolenc elaborated on “low-level graft, low-level corruption” by Brown — conflicts of interest, quid-pro-quo deals, and use of government funds for campaign purposes.
