New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only governor with a girlfriend problem. Oregon’s Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber is in hot water for the fact that his girlfriend cum fiancée cum “first lady” has been using their personal relationship to make money, as Washington Post’s Wonkblog noted.

The liberal Oregonian is calling on him to resign. Not, of course, for the bad example to the children which we now take for granted but at least for the affront to good government and taxpayers, bless ‘em:

“To recite every reported instance in which Hayes, ostensibly under Kitzhaber’s watchful eye, has used public resources, including public employee time and her ‘first lady’ title, in pursuit of professional gain would require far more space than we have here and, besides, repeat what most readers already know.”
