On Tuesday, Multnomah County Chair Jeff Cogen admitted to having a year-and-a-half long extramarital affair with county Health Department staffer Sonia Manhas.

Cogen says he was not in violation of county rules, and does not plan on stepping down. He also said that a recent promotion Manhas received was in no way connected to their affair.

What’s your reaction to Cogen’s admission?
