Illinois: Hundreds of Last-Minute Pardons. More to Follow

It is reported that Gov. Pat Quinn has granted 232 clemency petitions, including one for Alan Beaman, "who spent more than a decade in prison before DNA evidence cleared him in the 1993 murder of his girlfriend."  Quinn also denied 262 petitions but promises more grants on Monday, when Republican Bruce Rauner takes office.
