Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour says he's "very comfortable" with his decision to grant pardons or other clemency to more than 200 people, including convicted murders, in his last days in office. (Jan. 13)
he did the same bullshit that Arnold did...you are supposed to give the party's involved prior notice to the pardon, not afterwards.
Different media outlets are reporting different stories. Some are saying that the victims or the victims families were notified by the Parole Board of a "possible pardon." Others are saying that they weren't notified until after the pardon and their ultimate release.
