Description

Sam Adams, who at the time was Portland City Commissioner, met with a young intern several times. These meetings occurred before the intern's 18th birthday, but both stated the relationship was platonic. Though, at the same time Adams was being sworn in as the first openly gay mayor, the story was published showing that Adams and the intern had lied about their relationship.
