There’s a controversy today over an appointment in Oregon. The Oregon State Sheriff's Association was urging the President to appoint Dwight Holden as the next U.S. Attorney for Oregon; but his name was not forwarded to the White House by Senator Wyden's Office. The White House nominated Amanda Marshal, the attorney in charge of the Child Advocacy section at the Oregon Department of Justice since June of last year. Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergen feels Holton is a better choice. “The person that apparently is going to be appointed, we believe, potentially, has some issues and we can’t lend out support to that.” Marshal is expected to be appointed later today by President Obama.
