You can be pretty sure Bush didn't have any personal knowledgr of the case.

Bush Pardons

Post by Donna » Wed Dec 24, 2008 1:40 pm

I was reading the names at the bottom that Bush pardoned and I couldn't figure out why he was giving a pardon to these people then I read a name and realized why this person was on Bush's list. Last name is Miller he is basically unknown but his father was a loyal Republican Congressman in FL. I bet all the rest of them have some sort of similiar connection. :roll:

And to stay on topic I'm sure the guy in Utah wasn't even doing anything wrong in Bush's mind.

There is a high percentage of drug crimes there.....guess Bush still has a soft-spot for them.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I just saw a news story where he recinded on of the pardons!
Nobody can remember that being done before.
Something to the effect of "I wasn't told everything."

Rumor has it that the drug related pardons are at the request of the DEA.
They are guys that were informants but that they could't get the judges or SA, many up for re-election, to plea bargin in their cases.

But back to topic, I think you are right.
Something to the effect of "He has suffered enough for some arrow heads and old pots."
