Arizona: Jan Brewer's Continuing Train Wreck

On November 24, 2009, the Arizona state Board of Executive Clemency recommended clemency (a reduction in sentence) for 65-year old Patrick Maloney, who had been convicted of murdering his mother and stepfather almost a half a century ago, when he was 15 years old. Brewer has also reduced the sentence of Betty Smithey, who was sentenced to life without parole in 1963 for killing a child, but was paralyzed when the same Board recommended clemency for William Macumber, on the grounds of actual innocence!
