California: Brown Generous with Clemency

The Sacramento Bee reports that Governor Brown "is more inclined than previous governors to forgive." Indeed Brown granted more pardons this year than Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger granted in seven (16 pardons and 10 commutations of sentence). Gray Davis, granted none. Brown's whopping total? A mere 21!

A Press Secretary says Brown's "philosophy on pardons" is similar to that of Ronald Reagan, "Some people make mistakes but work for years to create a better life for themselves and others, and such efforts deserve recognition."
