Watch List: Bush Pardons Charlie Winters

It is now reported that President Bush has granted a posthumous pardon to Charlie Winters who is featured on our Pardon Watch List. To learn about Winters' fascinating story, read our post of November 22 here.

This is, of course, great news for supporters of boxing legend Jack Johnson, who also seek a posthumous pardon. It was not generally known if the Bush administration would go this route - first opened by Bill Clinton (with the pardon of Henry Flipper). Speaking of Henry, Mr. President, if you are going to do this kind of thing, don't forget O. Henry!
