The Greenwood Commowealth reports Daryl Neely, a "policy adviser" to Gov. Haley Barbour, has "defended" the governor's decision last week to give a reprieve to convicted killer Michael David Graham while not granting clemency to death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop. Neely says the Governor "developed a personal knowledge" of Graham's case and argued the two cases were "not apples to apples - not even apples to oranges." See story here.
