They don't give Pulitzers for just anything

On May 31, 2006, records show that Wyatt had dinner with Commissioner Junki Yoshida and Mike Irwin, director of the Transportation Security Administration's operations at Portland International Airport. The meal at El Gaucho totaled $189.85, including food, tip and seven glasses of whiskey....

Wyatt also did not list business reasons on expense forms for meals with Jay Waldron, the Port commission's president, or others on at least nine occasions. At one such meeting with Waldron, in June last year, the total for six glasses of wine -- $60 -- outpaced the food total of $41.25 for two entrees...

Wyatt also was present at a December 2006 dinner in Tokyo that included another top Port manager, the Port's paid representative in Japan and two commissioners. Port Marine Director Sam Ruda charged the $1,060 bill for food and beer for five people to his agency-issued credit card.
