Bush Pardons a Bunch of Drug Dealers

Categories: Crime, Politics

drugs.jpgBush handed out a round of presidential pardons on March 24 and, perhaps not surprisingly, a number of them were drug dealers. Five to be exact, according to the blog Legal Trade. One was distributing a mysteriously unnamed "controlled substance", one was selling pot, one was importing heroin, one was selling crack, and one over-achiever was in possession of both cocaine and marijuana. Do you think Bush offered to let these dudes crash on his couch for a couple days after he freed them? My favorite pardon went to a pair of criminals, Jerry and Thomas Moldenhauer of Colorado Springs, who were convicted of "knowingly selling migratory bird parts." Ew. –Andy Wright
