The President: More on Bush Pardons by State

Our analysis of President Bush's pardons and commutations by state and electoral vote support in the 2004 election ( see post here) has been given some attention by Chicago Tribune at "The Swamp" (here) and the Los Angeles Times (here). Both sources are astute in the observation that while there might be some correlation between the distribution of pardons and state population, the clemency numbers for high-population states like California (8), Illinois (4), Pennsylvania (4), Michigan (2) and New York (1) throw off that analysis off a bit - Texas leads all states with 17.
