Former Gov. Goldschmidt suffers stroke

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

The wife of former Oregon Gov. Neil Goldschmidt confirms he suffered a stroke but says he is all right.

The Oregonian reports that the 72-year-old Goldschmidt suffered the stroke recently. Beyond confirming the stroke and saying her husband is OK, Diana Snowden would provide no other details.

The newspaper reported Monday that the former governor was briefly hospitalized.

Goldschmidt was governor from 1987 to 1991. Before that he worked in President Jimmy Carter's administration, was an executive at Nike and served as mayor of Portland in the 1970s.

In 2004, Goldschmidt admitted having sex with a 14-year-old girl while he was mayor of Portland. The statute of limitations had expired, so Goldschmidt was immune from prosecution.
