Willamette Week Recuses Itself From Covering Oregon Attorney General Race

Willamette Week will not be covering the race for Oregon Attorney General, explains editor Mark Zusman in a note to readers:

[Candidate Ellen] Rosenblum is a recently retired state Court of Appeals judge. More important for the readers of WW, Rosenblum is married to my business partner, Publisher Richard Meeker. While, in my opinion, Rosenblum would be an outstanding AG, this newspaper has a conflict of interest. That’s why, as difficult as it may be to write this, we will not be covering the race or making an endorsement.
