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.
No mention of party afiliation, therefore Democrat.
“Beau Breedlove”. Can you make a name like that up?
The intern’s name is Beau Breedlove..how Clintonesque.
A name made for a scandal.....dem and gay are just bonuses!
Yeah, that and the fact he’s openly gay.
Why do you suppose he’s in DC? He asked him to lie “for” him? Oh, the huge manatee.
gotta love this stuff!!
Those Republicans just can’t contain themselves, can they?
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 ...
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.
In DC... hanging out with “Banking Queen” Barnie??
I thought maybe he was going to be at the pig orgy or whatever they’re calling it at the Doubletree Hotel.
I’d strongly suggest a photoless thread here.
This has SO brightened up my day - been dreading the DC lovefest tomorrow, but this helps to take the edge off.
Seven paragraphs before it becomes clear the intern was a boy.
Should have been what? Sam Adams might have suggested a tar and feathering.
My, he’s a gay-looking fellow.
LOL - no problem, I'm HTML-challenged. (He does sort of like like he could be Bwaney Fwank's kid brother.)
Portland loves its homosexual pedophiles, neh?
It won’t matter. He’s a dem. It only matters if it’s a republican who taps his foot in a public bathroom stall.
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!
“Mayor Adams is in Washington D.C. for the presidential inauguration”
Guest of Bawney Fwank?
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.
Reporters can find him for comment tonight ... at a Motel pig party in Bethesda(?).
That was my immediate reaction.
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're no doubt right. What can be expected of a city whose proud motto is: "Keep Portland Weird".
Beau Breedlove. Can you make a name like that up?”
Might be better than George Costanza’s - “Buck Naked”
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.
Bill Clinton paved the way for this...It’s perfectly OK to do your intern and then lie about it. Move along.
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.
I miss the old sex scandals...
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.
LOL - don't tell me that you're (like I am) old enought to remember Wilbur Mills and Fanne Foxe (the Argentine Firecracker) in the Tidal Basin?
I think Ian Fleming's "Pussy Galore" falls in there somewhere.
But then she was straight, so forget it.
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?
Thanks, Dave - you posted before I did but I hadn’t seen it yet. (I was so excited ;-) Can we combine these into one thread? (Don’t know if it still has legs.)
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.
