Goldschmidt Victim Story
In this photo taken Sept. 28, 1976, Portland mayor Neil Goldschmidt and Jewel Lansing, Democratic candidate for state treasurer, welcome Jimmy Carter to the city for two-day visit and busy campaigning. A former columnist for The Oregonian who spent many hours interviewing the woman abused as a young teenager by Neil Goldschmidt has released her account of the relationship following the woman's death last month. Goldschmidt, a former governor and Portland mayor, issued a public statement with the newspaper story saying he was saddened by the death but claiming many of the details were fabricated.
