Paper: Adams admits to lying about sex with former intern
Willamette Week ^ | 01/19/09 | KATU.com Staff

PORTLAND, Ore. - Newly sworn-in Mayor Sam Adams has admitted having a sexual relationship with a teenage intern he met in 2005, according to Willamette Week, a news partner of KATU.

The paper said it spoke with Adams Monday afternoon while the mayor was in Washington D.C.

In that interview, the paper reports, Adams said the relationship with Beau Breedlove lasted for a couple of months in 2005.

Adams and Breedlove met in 2005 when Breedlove was 17 years old. Adams told Willamette Week the pair had a sexual relationship but only after Breedlove turned 18.

Adams had denied having an intimate relationship with the teen when reports first surfaced in 2007 - at the beginning of his run for mayor. At the time, he wrote a "Open Letter to Portlanders" to respond to the controversy, calling it simply "ugly politicking."

On Monday, he told the paper the following:

"I have apologized to Beau Breedlove for asking him to lie for me. I want to apologize to my colleagues for my dishonesty and especially to the people of Portland for my dishonesty. I should have been truthful from the beginning."

KATU is trying to contact Adams in Washington D.C. for comment on the report.

Sam Adams, Portland’s Gay Mayor

Sam Adams is the first openly gay mayor of a top-40 US city. ... He then went to work for the Oregon House Democratic Campaign Committee and at that time ...

Just mentioned to Mr. Inspectorette - good time to break the news. If he were in Portland, the media would be breaking down the door to his office.

Not surprisingly, there are a lot of posts on The Oregonian website defending him.

He’s apologizing so I guess his resignation will be forthcoming? Oh wait, he’s a dem - nevermind.

Absolutely a Democrat. The swooning by the Portland libs when he was running, then elected, was a mini-version of the slobbering love-fest for Obama.

He's denying that the kid was underage when the sexual relationship started. Of course, he originally told the kid to deny the affair ever even happened. Liar, liar...

This has SO brightened up my day - been dreading the DC lovefest tomorrow, but this helps to take the edge off.

This is the same as what drove Mark Foley out of Congress. Foley had contacts with underage pages, but waited until they were 18 to pursue anything.

Foley, gone.

Adams???

How disgusting. If he was a Conservative or a Republican, he’d be run out of town. Instead he’s a Dem so they yawn or laugh. The false prophet/press just makes me sick. When they are roasting in the Lake of Fire for lying to us all, I will thank God for His justice.

Now, if he were a republican, the headline would have been REPUBLICAN MAYOR IN TEEN SEX SCANDAL

Instead, it’s a whitewash. What did he do, wait for the BOY to turn 18? Happy Birthday, Junior!

"I should have been truthful from the beginning."

Adams is a lying disgusting worm and as dirty a politician as they get. He worked extra hard to get his main competitor kicked off the ballot. Adams hid his own involvement by having one or two of those perenial candidate types file the challenges. The challenge failed, but cost Dozono at lot of time, energy, and money to fight back the all the challenges. His involvement was later exposed, but he paid no price for it.
The media here, The Oregonian, local TV news and radio stations completely avoided criticizing him. IMO, they sold out because they didn't want to face the backlash of criticizing an openly gay politician.

As blatantly disgusting as this is, this is Portland and nothing will come of it. He’ll ask us to just move forward and all of the slobbering libtards in PDX will eat it up. Remember, it isn’t lying when it comes from a Dem. It’s just an honest oversight.

He is a Dem. When this came out he of course denied it and claimed he only “mentored” him as a gay person coming of age. Instead he preyed on him.

This is the face of tyranny. With this homosexual pedophile, it's going to be the Gay mafia terrorizing citizens who are opposed to this sort of stuff, and the media keeping mum while protecting him and his Lavendar Shirt thugs.

With Obama, it's going to be his minions terrorizing people, and the media keeping mum.

You have to remember that this is the same state where top officials hid for years the fact that a Governor had sex with an underage girl. No one got in any trouble for this and a lot of people think you are a mean-spirited, dirty trickster Republican for even bringing up the fact that Gov. Goldschmidt is a child sex offender.

I think there was an old expression in Louisiana politics - you’ll never topple him unless you catch him with a dead girl or a live boy. I guess those days are long gone.

Only if he's a Republican. Didn't hurt the Massachusetts perverts, the late Gerry Studds and, of course, Bwaney Fwank, who could sodomize a goat on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, and his constituents would still vote him back in.

And since he obviously lied during the campaign about whether he had the affair, we can trust him to be totally truthful now about waiting until Master Breedlove was 18, right?

What is wrong with America? There are higher moral offenses in the world than lying to one’s lying government.The crime is not lying about having sex with a teen intern. The crime is having sex with a teen intern.
