Mississippi: Traaaa-dition!

In this story, oddly entitled "Pardons Common for Mississippi Governors," it is explained that it has "long, long been the custom and tradition" in Mississippi for governors (or, at least the last three) "to either commute, or suspend, or in some cases even pardon those who had served as a trusty in the Governor's Mansion." But an author who has examined politics in the State says pardons are still pretty much a no win situation.
