“There appears to be substantial objective basis to believe that one or more violations of Oregon Government Ethics law may have occurred as a result of Mr. Lindsey’s actions in relation to the marijuana being grown on Mr. Owenby and Ms. Page’s property in his neighborhood. The Oregon Government Ethics Commission should move to investigate whether John Lindsey may have violated ORS 244.040(1), ORS 244.040(4) and ORS 244.120(2 (Motion 4),” said the report approved by Ronald Bersin, the commission's executive director.
