Miss Oregon resigns

Word just came in. (Earlier coverage here.)

Comments (56)

Good!

The only bad thing is that she should have done it last weekend.

Let's hope that the next Miss Oregon, at the very least, went to high school in Oregon. Good job Jack, and thanks for uncovering this misdeed.

I believe Nichole Mead of Newport takes over. She has been entering beauty pag -- er, scholarship competitions in Oregon -- for a half dozen years, maybe more. Congratulations to her.

So sad. I feel sorry for the first runner up at her local. She was robbed of a trip to Seaside. Plus, who knows who should have been in the top 5, and maybe could have won.

Good point. But after this, I'm not sure I'd want to go to Seaside.

Here's hoping she lands on her feet back home in California. She's clearly bright and talented. She'll do well.

"Good point. But after this, I'm not sure I'd want to go to Seaside."

well just remember, you didn't start this

These girls love the MAO and everything it stands for. They are actually lovely, smart and talented young women. They are very dedicated to their platforms and community service. It is just so sad that one person can make the system look so bad.

Yeah, forget it Jack. It's Chinadolltown.

Nice detective work, though.

Good job Jack. Keeping people honest ain't easy. Somebody's got to do it.

Wish you had this kind of effect over the race for mayor.

You're going to have Hales looking over his shoulder Jack. Nicely done.

And Smith too. Well done Jack.

Unfortunately, the public knows full well that Hales falsified his residence either for tax purposes or for voting purposes. But the voters of Portland have far less smarts and morals than the people running pageants.

Sure hope these commenters feel the same standards apply to our politicians and government leaders. I guess it's easier to topple a young lady (deservedly) than expect the same outcome with proven and admitted liars, manipulators, perverts, non-residents, etc., who are a more protected species. Perhaps Miss Berry should have been assisted by the DA. I'm sure she would have been absolved.

Holy cheat!!

Maybe we should run the Mayoral election like a beauty pageant. Imagine Smith and Hales in bathing suits and high heels.

Would you rather be Woodward, or Bernstein, assuming the same actors are available, but at their current respective ages?

MissOregate?

I do hope Ms. Berry now launches a write in campaign for Mayor of Portland.

I would LOVE to hear her debate Charlie Hales on the ethics of eligibility requirements.

Wow, thank goodness that's over.

"I accept this decision to do the right thing"

This is 21st Century morality in action. You don't do the right thing until you are called out on doing the wrong thing, and then you somehow evade the issue of wrongdoing. Kind of like the apology, "I'm sorry your feelings got hurt" which is no apology at all. Honestly, I can't make sense of what Ms. Berry is trying to convey here, but an apology or admission of doing anything wrong it is not.

If you put half as much effort into investigating Obama's residency (at birth) as you did Miss Oregon's, maybe Joe Biden would be president now.

The real question is now that all of the hard work is done will the "professional journalists" follow up on the story, finally.

Or will they ignore it because to do something now would show their considerable inadequacies in investigating and reporting on the residency someone selected to represent this state.

Of course since they couldn't even bother with this story when Jack kept asking the hard questions and did the hard work for them, how can we expect them to do any real reporting on the tough issues facing Portland in the upcoming election.

And where is the resignation as Miss Willamette Valley?

Question:

Do their boobs have to be from Oregon, or can they be made in China?

If you put half as much effort into investigating Obama's residency (at birth) as you did Miss Oregon's, maybe Joe Biden would be president now.

I was too exhausted from Sarah Palin's fake pregnancy.

I'd rather they had done the work.

The SnOregonian?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm just glad this got cleared up before the runner up called Jeff Gillooly and his buddies.

Seems like the press release is mostly about covering the butts of the folks in Seaside who ran the charade.

Good job Jack.

And good luck to Ms. Berry. She seems like a decent and out-going person. I'm sure that the dream of going to Miss America pageant was very hard to give up, and that's why she took as long as she did. (Which was still only two and half weeks.)

Before I forget this issue for ever, I would just argue for even longer residency requirements from someone meant to represent Oregon. A couple of years at least.

FINALLY! Now I can sleep peacefully.

I agree with Max. Perhaps Jack should turn his focus onto the pageant folks who are really responsible for this as Rachel seems to be the only taking the hit for this unfortunate situation. The real truth is out there, but Rachel probably won't be allowed to tell it.

For the poor sport loser who started all this and thinks she's just little miss goody two shoes & her 1st runner up friend who now is the new Miss O, we feel bad for you two. Nichole you win by a technicality and your whiney poor sport friend has hit rock bottom. Well between the 2 of you, you have about 1/8th of the talent, poise, stage presence, confidence and overall quality that Rachel has. This is coming from a brother of one of the contestants that didn't even make top 10. Nichole you are a thrash dancer who really needs major correction & technique and please learn how to not make that wrinkled forehead "I need to take a crap" face, every 5 seconds you are on stage. It will not work at Miss America. And for the poor sport friend... Your dancing sucked but your singing really did!
I wish my sister was the one representing the state of Oregon but atleast I can say she would never talk poorly of Rachel & her pageant sisters and be as low as some of these girls have gone! Best of luck to you Rachel!

Poor, thanks for letting us know how the folks in Ft. Wayne think. Now go away...

Poor Sport: If you are the brother of one of the contestants, why would you be okay with Ms. Berry being in the pageant when she's not eligible?! Doesn't seem fair to your sister, whom I assume you'd want to do well. Explain that to me, please.

And why the attacks on the other contestants?

It is time Oregon had a blond anyway.

Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America? On second thought, who gives a rip?

Poor Sport:

I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps, and I believe that our education like such as South Africa, and the Iraq, everywhere like, such as, and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., or should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for our children."

I rarely even read comments here anymore, but Mssr. Tee, that was a walk-off home run.

I love that the official press release states that "After a subsequent review of the residency requirement,..." Sounds like an admission that they'd never bothered to check whether she'd actually lived in Oregon for six months. Probably never do because they don't care and thought they'd never get caught.

Plus, the quote attributed to Ms. Berry definitely sounds as though it was written for her by pageant officials ("I accept the decision..."). That press release may have been her official (and only) notification that she was no longer Miss Oregon.

God, can't we finally get rid of these horribly sexist, trashy, and tacky pageants? Women don't need to participate in a "t*** and a** market" to earn scholarships. That's just the lame rationale used by creepy men (like Donald Trump) and extremely stupid women to continue making money off the sexual objectification of women. It's sad that there are still young girls, teens, and women who don't see anything wrong with being judged only by their physical "beauty" (please, the talent and "brains" part is just the rationale to hold the meat market competitions).

If the teenage and adult pageants were stopped, then maybe there would be less of a market for the clearly child abusive "Toddlers and Tiaras" pageants.

Mssr. Tee: Say what?

And what the hell is a "walk-off" home run.

Mssr.Tee, spot on, some spot, but not sunspots. There's going to be a spot initiative on the ballet so I hear you know.
Please confess your comment plagiarized a verbatim vacuity of Palin or Romney or Cain or Dumbo or McCain or Bachmann turned overdrive, somebody! Confess, or else?

Sorry for the spell if aironeous. Jerky's retrograde.

Good grief...do we NEED these pageants any more? Its 2012 for God's sake. I saw Toddlers and Tiaras once and wanted all the parents jailed. That is the the junior version of all this. It needs to go away.

I hope the runner up enjoys every minute of her reign as the "real" Miss Oregon.

Tensky, check out Caitlin Upton for Mssr. Tee's quote: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caitlin_Upton

Maybe we should run the Mayoral election like a beauty pageant. Imagine Smith and Hales in bathing suits and high heels.

Ewwwww. Mayoral Candidates in Speedos? No thanks. And Hales would probably demand it'd have something to do with bicycling...which is not much better.

Now if we could only get the Timbers to resign . . . .

smells like fraud she got $10,000 by lying putting up false information . needs to go to jail

Jail? "Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?" - Alexander Pope

But I would like to send this one out to home girl, and I say "home girl" ironically.

Midnight Train to Cali

Oregon proved too much for the girl
(Too much for the girl, she couldn't fake it)
So she's leavin' the life
She's come to know, ooh

(She said she's goin')
She said she's goin' back to find
(Goin' back to find)
Ooh, what's left of her world
The world she left behind not so long ago

Oh, she's leavin'
(Leavin')
On that midnight train to Cali, yeah
(Leavin' on that midnight train)

Said, she's goin' back
(Goin' back to find)
To a simpler place in time
(When she takes that ride)
Oh yes, she is
(You won't be by her side)

I won't be with her
(We know you won't)
On that midnight train to Cali
(Leavin' on that midnight train to Cali, ooh ooh)
I'd rather she live in her world
(Live in her world)
Than try her weak scams in mine.

Best thing about beauty pageants is their fostering of satire. One of my favorite cinematic moments is in the child-beauty-pageant-insanity-themed movie Little Miss Sushine. Alan Arkin plays grandpa, dance and presentation prep coach, OD's on heroin in a motel room on the way to a pageant, and the family smuggles his body out of the hospital so they can keep up their trajectory to the pageant....IMO, very few movie moments are funnier than the highway speedtrap stop by the motorcycle cop, who proceeds to get distracted enough by grandpa's porn stash that he fails to notice the corpse in the trunk. Anyway, good luck, momentary miss Oregon, we hope you will be able to do something about our homeless population problem before you take off for better shores.

The news said they weren't sure if she would have to give back the $10,000 scholarship!! I would say....yes she should.

Jack, big UP. I know your type and it is sincere personal modesty in you which deflects praise accolades for behaving by normal ethical sense.
Problem is (for somebodies) that your baseline morality in issues of fair play and justice, when compared to theirs as they are always quick to be comparing in their lost search for their own inner fibers, makes theirs look less. When you act humanly, and they aren't that good, what does that make them?

I mean the Reporters -- investigative, human-interest, journalistic, and TVnews frauds -- Reporters of every description. I mean them. You guys and gals, get this message: WTF We The Folks humanly don't measure down to you. Newspapers, and broadcasters granted the privilege Right of Press, (1934 foolishness), you cheat us.

Don't wonder why, or fear, the internet is taking over your communications industry. It is no 'takeover,' the job was empty and the internet just started doing it. You PressTVers never handled it - Why? because you are not informed, out on the streets, in the world. You only know bloodlust (it's the lead story) and banal grotesquery in disadvantaged victims of abysmal circumstances. Fear your own selves, hatemongers. Oh, and boobs, butts, and blondes, [Redundant, sorry.], too.

You are toast, you TVpeeps, and you newspaper propaganda pitchers sitting so smug on The Wire Service. The intertubes is sucking up you and your mess in our country swept under cover since RaygunBush. Thanks for nothing.

Jack, the civil values in you makes incivil television (which is all of it) look bad -- you outdo them. Meanwhile their actual productions, like the gullible reportage endorsing Miss OregonNOT, with uninformed blind faith, makes incivil television look bad -- they undo themselves.

The Press & massmedia are never going to do the story (confessing) on the stories they wrongly censored (and who ordered them), and the false stories they deceivingly featured, (and who ghostwrote them); and those TP&MM employments and employees are worthless, dirt in the dustbin of history, until confession and atoning is done.

All hail the web of society, and cultures. Newspapermen claim Craigs List has bankrupted Classified Ads revenue, and who expected it? Well, notice that Facebook is the new Obituaries. We already know where everyone goes for news and it's not the morning paper. What's left, comics? editorial opinion? The worldwide web has got those, too.

I gotta admit, Jack, there at first you sounded like a foil-hatted ulterior-motive conspiratizer as soon as you disagreed with and disputed the version of Miss Oregon that TV told us. It is a preposterous proposal to go on the internet, research, get facts, report a news item -- how can you know what to believe? you can't believe claims you read on the internet, you know, only believe what professional News makers (or beauties playing professionals) on TV tell you to believe.
It's a good thing you don't get too carried away with success by web research and investigation, or the next thing you know you'd be watching videos of the Twin Towers being blown up, bit.ly/XQVkS (not 'pancaking' down), or reading published lab analyses proving specialized government-only paint-on thermate explosives residue found abundant in the dust layer across Manhattan bit.ly/97uyDx ... and who knows how big your foil hat might expand. Heck you might even read through the documentation of Obama's life raised and guided through CIA foster care, bit.ly/bam4zf to become the second CIAgent president ... or double-agent, posing as a Democrat but secretly working for Republicans.
Don't work so hard at doubting. Simply believe what TV said caused nine-eleven and believe what TV says Obama is, and who Miss Oregon is, and let it go at that. Move on, nothing more to tell.
Surely you can't think the internet will ever have as much authoritative reporting as TV and newspapers.

GayeHarris,

Re: Little Miss Sunshine

One of my favorite movies of all time. The below exchange occurs when Dad first hears that his sister-in-law will be unable to accompany Olive to the pageant (which they entered her into)...

Dad: It's this Sunday? Why can't Jeff and Cindy take her?

Mom: They have some equestrian thing in Santa Barbara.

Dad: You know, they do that horse s**t every single weekend.

Mom: Well, it's the nationals. They're taking both horses, so apparently it's a big deal.

Dad: What about Olive?

He says horse s**t without any sense of irony.

Great comments, best ever y'all. A laugh riot.
