SALEM, OR -- Will Governor Kitzhaber commute the sentences of Oregon's death row inmates in his final hours as Governor?  Clatsop County D.A. and death penalty proponent Josh Marquis talked with Lars Larson about the possibility on Tuesday.  "I honest really hope Kitzhaber is not that foolish and vain.  Some believe he could do it to create a new legacy.  But there's only one governor who tried that and he ended up in prison."

 

Marquis is referring to former Illinois Governor George Ryan who commuted the sentences of 160 inmates on death row before he was convicted of corruption charges and served five years in federal prison.  Governor Kitzahber has not given any indication whether he'll issue any last minute executive orders.
