Let's meet one of the villains Representative Suder is so concerned about: Frank James II
OK, technically speaking, Mr. James was not actually yanked from prison. That would have required a commutation of sentence. But Governor Doyle has never ever granted a commutations of sentence - that's right, not a single one. No, Mr. James was simply pardoned for his 1986 conviction for attempted armed robbery. James left prison in 1989, yep, more than twenty years ago! Since James left prison, he has become a husband, a father, a pastor, a college graduate (Magna Cum Laude) and a mentor.
It appears that this is just the kind of person Scott Suder does not want on the streets of Wisconsin! How the State's Pardon and Advisory unanimously recommended clemency for James is downright baffling !
