Alabama: Commutation Sought for McNair

John Archibald of the Birmingham News reports there is an effort to get a commutation of sentence from President Obama for Chris McNair, who took in $850,000 of bribes from contractors when he oversaw a sewer system. The U.S. Pardon Attorney confirms that a formal application for clemency has been filed in the Department of Justice. Archibald also says U.S. attorneys have met "at least twice in recent weeks" to "discuss the request" of the 85-year old McNair. See full story here.

He has to pay for his crime, past behavior does not excuse his wrong doing
