OR-SEN: the Monica Wehby follies

Carla Axtman

I've been on hiatus from BlueO for most of the last couple of months, toiling away on a bunch of other projects. But I can't resist coming out from my self-imposed blogging drought to sit in awe of the Boyfriend PAC, also known as Monica Wehby's squeeze, Andrew Miller.

Unless you've been living under a political rock, you know that Miller and the ever-creepy Loren Parks launched a $100k attack campaign against Jason Conger, who is running in the Oregon GOP Senate primary with Wehby. Miller claims the whole thing happened independently of Wehby and that he didn't tell her what he was up to.

So Miller is close enough to her to be her boyfriend, but not close enough to tell her that he's dropping $100k to fluff up her campaign against her opponent? That's some crazy relationship dynamics.

The fun part for a political watcher like me, of course, is that it's entertaining to watch the two camps go at it in what appears to be a genuine dislike fest. These people DO NOT LIKE EACH OTHER. At all.

But even better, the national press has picked up on Miller's activities on behalf of his paramour. And it's serving to make Wehby a bit of a national joke.

Are the Oregon Republicans really silly enough to nominate this woman? If so, carry on GOP. This is a blogger's delight.
