Ethics commission issues written reprimand to likely GOP gubernatorial candidate Knute Buehler

The Oregon Government Ethics Commission will issue a “letter of education” to Republican state Rep. Knute Buehler for failing to properly disclose all his income and stock holdings.

The ethics commission voted 6-0 on Friday to make the formal and fairly common reprimand. The watchdog agency, however, did not impose a civil fine on the likely 2018 Republican gubernatorial candidate for the violations.

Buehler, an orthopedic surgeon, didn’t include on his required annual financial disclosure a $12,500 payment he received in 2013 for serving on the board of a Bend hospital, St. Charles Health System, as he should have, a review by the commission’s staff found. He also failed to properly list many stock holdings worth more than $1,000 in his 2013, 2014 and 2015 filings.

The commission previously ruled that Buehler made the necessary disclosures for a series of other payments he received from medical companies, which the Democratic Party of Oregon questioned in an April ethics complaint.
