Retired Judge To Head Troubled DMV

The governor today named a former Superior Court judge as commissioner of the Division of Motor Vehicles to replace a DMV chief who resigned over allegations that he helped a friend get preferential treatment.

Governor Mike Easley said in a news release that William "Bill" Gore Jr. of Whiteville, agreed to take the position. Gore retired from the bench at the end of July.

Gore replaces George Tatum, who stepped down last month amid speculation that he helped a friend get a vintage title for a replica truck. The title would make the vehicle more valuable and cost less in taxes.

Tatum denied helping with the title.
