Oregon: ex-senator disbarred after campaign contribution conviction

AP reports: Former Republican state Rep. Dan Doyle has resigned from the practice of law in Oregon following his convictions for falsifying campaign finance reports.

The Oregon Supreme Court accepted his resignation this week from the bar under terms that prevent his return to practicing law.

"He cannot reapply for admission," Kateri Walsh, a spokeswoman for the Oregon State Bar, said Thursday. "It is the functional equivalent of being disbarred and is permanent in Oregon." ...

Doyle pleaded guilty last September to 11 felony counts of falsifying campaign finance reports. Prosecutors said it was to conceal the diversion of about $150,000 in contributions to Doyle's personal use. -- kgw.com | News for Oregon and SW Washington | AP Wire
