Uhhh...I kind of care because this is a public office that's making decisions in the public's interest and using public money. You've heard of the word integrity before, right? Outside of Jeff "The Toke'n Coke'n" Cogen's pee-pee touch party, this affair resulted in the loss of jobs for several people, the loss of funding for other programs as funding was shifted away to play favorites for Sonia, and the further erosion of the public's trust in our elected officials.
I was a huge fan of Jeff Cogan, there was a time when he was one of the only public figures in Portland I felt I could believe in. I find this soap opera silly and juvenile as well, but it's also heartbreaking on many levels.
The DOJ may not have found any "criminal" behavior, but they certainly uncovered plenty of unethical behavior, and this sham of an investigation is one more example of how pathetic and crony influenced the department has shown itself to be over the last several years. Did anyone ever really think the DOJ would actually come back with anything? Hell...they didn't even bother to interview David Austin, Cogen's right hand man. Pathetic.
And I felt no ill-will towards Manhas, untill reading this.
