Dem Governor Denies Prior Knowledge of Cover Oregon Failure, Exits Local News Interview

KATU Exclusive Interview: PORTLAND, Ore. – Gov. John Kitzhaber’s staff hastily ended his scheduled one-on-one interview with KATU News on Thursday morning barely four minutes after it had begun when KATU began asking about problems with Cover Oregon's website. Kitzhaber was in Portland to discuss Cover Oregon’s new enrollment numbers even as he admitted the exchange’s costly and all-important website will likely not be functioning for the foreseeable future. Despite the website’s disastrous launch – it was set to go live Oct. 1 – and KATU's numerous reportsof botched enrollments, Kitzhaber claimed Cover Oregon is actually outperforming expectations.
