As the Richmond Times-Dispatch sees it, the last year of Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's term "brought a record setting flood of gubernatorial forgiveness." More specifically, Kaine granted 64 pardons and restored the voting rights of more than 1,300 felons in 2009. It is noted that Kaine granted only 55 pardons in his first three years as Governor.
