U.S. Rep. David Wus behavior grew so erratic in the final weeks before his re-election last November that the Oregon Democrats closest political advisers staged two of what some of them termed interventions to urge him to seek psychiatric help, WW has learned.
Wus increasingly odd behavior and communication typified by this set of emails so troubled staff that sources say the employees deliberately hid him from public view during the last three days of Wus campaign even as his Republican opponent furiously fought for votes across Oregons 1st Congressional District.

The emails do not offer a definitive account of why Wus aides fled the congressmans office in significant numbers just after his sixth successful re-election campaign. They do reveal that Wus staffers apparently had confronted the congressman about his drinking. They also suggest Wu faced accusations of harassment from his employeesand that Wu wasnt eager to listen to any of the advice.

(There is no septic system so vile, so filthy, the left won't drink from to further their agenda)
so glad these staffers cared enough to make sure he was forced back upon us for two years before jumping ship.
When I lived in Portland 5 years ago “Willamette Week” was a typical big town, artsy, Hard Left, free, tabloid newspaper.
I think you have to commend these guys for publicly trashing one of their own.
I believe “WWeek” also broke the story a few years back about Portland's closet gay Democratic mayor having a relationship with an underage male.
The police were eventually forced to investigate, but state prosecutors declined to file charges.
If the Hard Left national news media had this attitude, Conservative Freepers wouldn't have to work so hard.

He’s got plenty of company. I thought that was a job requirement. And the zombies in his district, wow! “I must vote democrat, I must vote democrat, .....”
