Watch List: Edwin Edwards

The Times Picayune is reporting on former Gov. Edwin Edwards who is among those seeking a presidential pardon from George W. Bush. Edwards will soon turn 81 but will not be eligible for release until 2011. Former Gov. David Treen and former U.S. Sen. J. Bennett Johnston are supporting the application but U.S. Attorney Jim Letten will not disclose his position on the matter. See story here.
