The governor has narrowed the list of 10 applicants vying for the seat vacated by former judge Lynn Ashcroft to three.

The three are Michael C. Livingston, a sitting Marion County Juvenile Court judge; Salem trial lawyer Vance D. Day; and Dale W. Penn, former Marion County District Attorney and current director of the Oregon State Lottery Office.

The governor is is conducting interviews with the three lawyers today. An announcement could come as soon as tomorrow.

So Dale Penn wants to be a Circuit Court judge now, huh? And His buddy Kulongoski has him included in his top three picks? Don’t that just beat all!

    Are you fucking kidding me. What is wrong with this State. Just to hear, speak or read the name Dale Penn and the controversy explodes. How can a man who has done so much wrong still have so much control over others? I feel very sorry for the wrongly accused that end up in court with him.

    Hmmm, are you all getting this eerie feeling……. the song just hit me……. "It’s all the same, only the names have changed." Have to keep them all in the hush business.
