PORTLAND, Ore. - Conservative radio talk show host Lars Larson has filed a bar complaint against Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski.
Larson wants the state bar to investigate whether the governor lied about his knowledge of a sex scandal involving former Governor Neil Goldschmidt.
Goldschmidt eventually admitted sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl when he was mayor of Portland in the 1970s - but the revelations didn't come to light until 2004.
Based on statements by a former Goldschmidt aide - Larson says in his letter, "We have reason to believe based on public interviews ... that Governor Kulongoski knew about the abuse of the girl by Governor Goldschmidt."
Governor Kulongoski has denied having any knowledge of the abuse.
Larson wants the state bar to determine if Kulongoski lied about the matter - and whether his bar license should be suspended or revoked.
Aides to the governor say the governor will have no comment on the complaint.
