Oregon's state attorney general has agreed to investigate claims made by the mayor of Portland that he lied to cover up a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old. Mayor Sam Adams has admitted that he lied to cover up his relationship with a teenage legislative intern because rumors were being spread that Adams had sex with a minor.

April Baer reports for Oregon Public Broadcasting.
