Colorado: Ritter Saves Justice for Last-Minute Consideration

KDVR Fox 31, Denver, reports that Governor Bill Ritter claims to be working on a "stack full" of clemency applications. He leaves office on January 11. The report says Ritter's "legal counsel" says the governor (a former prosecutor)  "has granted a handful of pardon requests over the past four years." We are left to guess that they must not keep track of these things well in Colorado, or it is all kept very secret, or the reporter just didn't have the time to gather any pertinent facts for the story! The report does share that former Republican Governor Bill Owens granted 13 pardons in the eight years that he was in office. See story here.
