Congressional Panel Seeks Oregon Governor's Health-agency Documents

Saturday, 14 Feb 2015 03:37 PM

A U.S. House committee investigating Cover Oregon has asked the office of departing Gov. John Kitzhaber to preserve all documents related to the shutdown of the botched health insurance exchange.

A letter submitted Friday by four members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asks for a slew of documents in hopes of understanding whether campaign advisers played a role in the decision to switch to the federal health insurance exchange.

The letter warns the governor's office not to alter or destroy any records — a reference to a report that Kitzhaber's office recently asked state officials to destroy emails from the governor's personal account.

The investigative committee asks the governor's office to turn over the documents by Feb. 27.

Kitzhaber announced his resignation Friday amid a conflict-of-interest scandal.
