Governors Support Pardon for Governor

The Chicago Sun Times reports Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) has joined former Illinois Governor Jim Thompson (R) to support clemency for former Illinois Governor George Ryan. Amazingly, the story says nothing about the fact that Blagojevich has let thousands, that's right, thousands of clemency applications build up on his desk. And there has been much speculation about why he has neglected his duty to pardon.

Nonetheless, Blago says he thinks "it would be a good decision” for Bush to let Ryan out because he (Blago) tends to "always err on the side of compassion,” What? Is it possible that no one laughed when the Governor said this? Blag added, "I think people make mistakes." Indeed, Mr. Governor. Consult the huge pile of clemency applications on your desk to put a few thousand names next to that thought! See story here.

Blagojevich Pardon policy is a joke. he should be just as ashamed as Governor Easley of North Carolina. Both have seriously neglected their duties as Governor.
