Blog Buzz: Bush the Grinch When it Comes to Pardons--UPDATED

Grinch_1Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy and Orin Kerr at The Volokh Conspiracy have interesting posts about Bush's grinchly use of pardons.  [Mark Godsey]  So do Crime and Federalism, DeNovo and White Collar Crime Prof, which notes that 80% of pardons have gone to white collar criminals.   Cited in the Berman blog is my friend and colleague, Margaret Colgate Love, who among other things was the U.S. Pardon Attorney, Ethics 2000 committee member, Kennedy Commission member, and Chair of the ABA Task Force on Collateral Sanctions; she is the leading expert on this topic; some of her thoughts are available here and here.
