Oregon's First Wife Dabbled In a Little Green Card Fraud, Plotted a Pot Plot

This lady swings, baby. Sinatra-style.

Governor John Kitzhaber's fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, has a lot of disclosures lately.

So, last week she confessed she'd taken $5000 to fake-marry an Ethiopian in order to get him a defrauded Green Card. Apparently the statute of limitations is over on that one, so she thinks it's okay to let that story out there.

Of course, that means the Ethiopian, while not prosecutable, is not really a US citizen, as he fraudulently obtained his citizenship. But okay.

So now she's got some other stuff to unload.

Oregon's first lady has admitted to taking part in a plan to illegally grow marijuana on a property more than a decade ago.


In a statement provided to KOIN-TV, Hayes acknowledged her role in the marijuana-growing scheme but contended that she did not put money down for the property.
"I am not proud of that brief period of time -- I was involved in an abusive relationship with a dangerous man," Hayes said in a statement, invoking her press conference last week. "We lived together for several months on the property in Okanogan that was intended to be the site of a marijuana-grow operation that never materialized. I was never financially involved with it. I did not pay any part of the down payment or mortgage payments. I had no money."

There is more. Kitzhaber himself has been compelled to order an investigation of his wife, who has a company called 3E Strategies, to discover if she's attempted to benefit financially from her relationship with the governor.

1, I'm sure this investigation will be undertaken with utmost vigor,


2, This lady? No way!

I have seen this character before. I liked her better when she was just a fashion editor, rather than an "advisor" to the governor on energy policies and btw also his sexual partner.

Skip to 17:20 to see Nina Van Horn, who had been romancing a straight-laced Senator by posing as a demure southern homemaker, come clean about her actual history when she can maintain the ruse no more.

"See, Manny, it's like this..."
