SALEM, Ore. — In response to Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum’s civil suit against Oracle America, Governor Kitzhaber has announced he will full support the Attorney General. He released a statement August 22nd after the announcement of the lawsuit being filed. This is the statement made by the Governor:
“When I asked the Attorney General in May to take legal action against Oracle, I thought it was important to hold the company accountable and recover taxpayers’ dollars for its flawed and incomplete work. We were all aware of Oracle’s poor performance and failure to deliver a working website for Cover Oregon.
Today, after months of investigation, the Attorney General’s findings go well beyond disappointing and incomplete work. The complaint filed contains serious new allegations of fraud, deceit, and corruption by Oracle. The details of the complaint, including the admissions of former Oracle employees, are appalling to me.
I fully support the Attorney General’s actions against Oracle. I will provide whatever is necessary to protect Oregon taxpayers and hold Oracle accountable.”
