Watch List: Stevens Not in the Pardon Pool

We placed Alaska Senator Ted Stevens (R) on our Pardon Watch List very grudglingly (see previous commentary in PardonPower posts here and here). But, today, The Hill reports that Stevens will not be seeking a presidential pardon. We never really expected that he would and we seriously doubt that the president will grant an unrequested pardon. See story here.

UPDATE: The Crypt asked Stevens to elaborate on his decision not to seek a pardon from President Bush. Stevens responded, "I didn’t say anything about that at all. I said nothing about it. No comment, that’s all. I have no comment." PardonPower remains unconvinced Bush will be granting a pardon to Stevens.
