Attack on judge's record disheartening

Posted: November 5, 2012 - 9:01am

As a former superior court judge here in Anchorage, I am dismayed and disheartened by the politically-motivated last-minute attack on Judge Sen Tan by the so-called “Alaska Family Action” group, which was reported in the Anchorage Daily News. As Judge Tan is without a doubt one of the finest and most honorable of our judges, unanimously recommended for retention by the Alaska Judicial Council, and rated at the top of his profession by his peers, by Alaska law enforcement officers, by jurors who have served in his court, and by all others who have observed his performance over the years, it would be a great injustice if a carefully-planned sneak attack such as this should succeed. The attackers should be ashamed of themselves, not only for the way they have conducted this smear campaign, but also for their refusal to consider Judge Tan’s excellent and impartial performance during his many years on the bench. I’m hoping Alaska voters will see through this reprehensible attempt to coerce judicial performance that would coincide with a small minority”s narrow-minded political views.

I will be voting to retain Judge Tan, and I’m sure those people in our community who value impartiality and fair-mindedness will also vote for retention.

My Vote

Judge Tan received my vote today. This Minnery charleton has suddenly been accorded ink space in the news. He's Pervos Boy Friday, and is nothing but a con man who found out the extreme fundamentalists will give him bucks. What a creep! He has NOTHING to do with our elections! He has NO power! Don't listen to the fraud.
