State treasurer calls on governor to resign

SALEM, Ore. - State Treasurer Ted Wheeler has called on Gov. John Kitzhaber to resign.

"It is with deep sadness that I ask Governor John Kitzhaber to resign his position as Governor of Oregon. He has accomplished many great things during his long career, and history will be kinder to him than current events suggest.

"Unfortunately, the current situation has become untenable, and I cannot imagine any scenario by which things improve. Oregon deserves a Governor who is fully focused on the duties of state.

"I hope the Governor will do the right thing for Oregon and its citizens."
