Minnesota Public Radio reports Gov. Pawlenty said "he never granted clemency during his time as governor and would not have granted clemency to the alleged shooter in Washington." PardonPower wonders if Pawlenty meant to say there were no deserving recipients of clemency during his tenure. Hopefully he wasn't a big enough jackass to allow persons he knew to be innocent to continue to be punished! We are also to infer that, had he been presented with a commutation of sentence petition from a person sentenced for 108 years in prison for crimes they committed when they were 16 years old that he would not have even considered it. PardonPower officially declares Pawlenty an IDIOT. See story here.
