Illinois: 10 Pardons

According to the Chicago Tribune, Ilinois Gov. Bruce Rauner "granted 10 petitions for clemency and denied 78 other requests" on Friday Friday. The petitions granted were for crimes including "retail theft, burglary and drug possession." Some involved cases "decades old" and none of the cases involved prison sentences. Rauner says he has "eliminated a backlog of thousands of clemency requests he inherited from previous governors." See full story here.

Wow, taking action on 88 requests clears Illinois backlog? Missouri has something like 3000+ that they're sitting on.
