Missouri: 8 Pardons

Gov. Nixon: Precious Little Mercy
Gov. Jay Nixon is pardoning eight persons "convicted of nonviolent crimes." Sentences included convictions for "stealing, selling cocaine and writing a bad check." Each of the recipients has "finished" associated sentences and "later found work or pursued an education." Now, the pardons restore their rights.

The Democratic governor has now granted a mere 31 pardons and 3 commutations of sentence since he entered office, way back in 2009. It is also reported that there are "about 3,000 pending requests for clemency." See story here.

Missouri Governor has taken action to give certain people their civil rights back. President Obama......not so much with the same thing! Why is the big question?
