Watch List: Ryan's Tardy Application

Chicago Public Radio reports "lawyers for former Illinois Governor George Ryan finally submitted a request yesterday, asking President George Bush to let their client out of jail." Six months ago, former Illinois governor Jim Thompson said the "next appropriate step" was to ask for clemency but, for whatever reason, the application was not filed. Chicago Public Radio also says one of Ryan's attorneys "would not comment on the delay."

Were they waiting on a letter of support from Sen. Dick Durbin?! See story here.
