What A Governor's Inaction (Lack of Mercy) Says

Draco. A Guide for Many Governors
"I am outside of - and reject - America's constitutional tradition. I will not participate in a system of separation of powers and checks and balances because, in my state, the legislative and judicial branches are perfect. Criminal processes are, likewise, without flaw. Offenders of the law are all guilty of the very worst, unforgivable violations and no one ever experiences (or deserves recognition for) anything like penitence, restitution or rehabilitation. In my state, it's "once a criminal, always a criminal." Eternal punishment is no particular horror. Indeed, I insist it is state policy."

That's what a governor says when he / she fails to pardon - P.S. Ruckman, Jr.
