The Oregonian has picked up on Saltzmangate. Now the Commissioner is reneging on his position yesterday, citing shyness as a reason not to have made the disclosure:

"In retrospect, maybe I should have done that (disclose his relationship)," he said, but he's shy and the thought of announcing his private life and outing someone "who is not affected by this grant whatsoever didn't seem appropriate."

Update, 2:08: Jack Bogdanski also points out that Saltzman has been endorsed by a child molester. Awkward.
