It is by now well known that George W. Bush, like his father, was fairly stingy with respect to use of the pardon power. PardonPower previously noted that the son also seemed to favor the State of Texas in the distribution of grants (see chart here). Just to complete the picture, we ran the same analysis for the pardons granted by George H.W. Bush and this chart is what we came up with. It thus appears that the son and father were alike in more ways than one!
