Tigard Sting Nets Two High Profile Johns
By Pat Boyle
September 5, 2013 - The CEO of a hedge fund is one of nine men busted in a prostitution sting in Tigard. Jim Bisenius runs Common Sense Investment Management which handles 3 billion dollars for various endowments and pension funds. The firm says he will remain with the company. It issued a statement that says " recent personal transgressions bear no reflection on this outstanding team of professionals or the quality of the portfolio management."
The New York Times reports his wife has majority control of the company. Bisenius controls 10 to 25 percent of it. Several industry insiders tell the Times the arrest could harm the fund's reputation. Dealbreaker.com reports Bisenius donated $22,000 to a 2004 anti gay marriage ballot measure. If convicted, he could face up to a year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.
Also arrested was animal law attorney Geordy Duckler who was in the news a few years ago when he represented a couple trying to keep the state from seizing Snowball, their pet deer.
