We'd begun to forget about the story.

Things were getting quiet about the Mayor Adams scandal, and then-- the Mayor gets in a car crash.
And two witnesses say they thought he'd been drinking. (The Mayor denies it.)
That's part of Willamette Week reporter Nigel Jaquiss' take on the last week.

Oregonian reporter, Anna Griffin says the Mayor is in campaign mode, which means he's trying to please anyone he can with all the big projects he's proposing.
Then waffling again on Memorial Coliseum as a site for a new Beavers baseball stadium.
We're back to Lents Park now.

Anna and Nigel give us more insight into the events surrounding Mayor Adams Saturday night at 6:30 on Straight Talk.

We also listen to part of the interview Nigel did with Mayor Adams in January when he denied he had a relationship with Beau Breedlove.

Here's a link to that interview.

Also in our show Saturday, Congressman Kurt Schrader from Oregon's 5th district joins us.

He tells me how he plans to defend himself in the upcoming 2010 election with the Republican National Congressional Committee already gunning for him.

He also explains his first big bill,co-sponsored by a Republican from New York, to simplify taxes for small business owners.

Join me tomorrow night at 6:30p.m for "Straight Talk",and leave your comments here.
Let's keep talking.
