Marc Abrams

Marc Abrams is a former Chair of the Democratic Party of Oregon who was paroled from the Portland School Board after eight years, with no time off for good behavior. When he left the PPS Board, he swore he would take a year off from politics. He lasted five weeks. He can be heard every Sunday morning from 9 to 11 on Newsradio 750 KXL, agonizing Lars Larson's listeners, where he co- hosts "Kremer and Abrams." Marc, a card-carrying union and ACLU member, earns his living as a Senior Assistant Attorney General for the State of Oregon and is currently President of AFSCME Local 1085. He got his law degree from the University of Michigan, a powerhouse football team attached to a diploma mill. Not smart enough to be born in Oregon, he stumbled in in 1981 and stayed. In a time in which we can no longer tell whether the person mumbling to themselves on the street is a schizophrenic or is wearing a Bluetooth earphone, Marc, who is one or the other (possibly both), can be found on the streets of Portland, still muttering with happy disbelief about the 2006 election result. [NOTE: Marc speaks for himself only on these pages, and not for the Attorney General or Oregon Department of Justice.]
