No New York clemencies this season
In a recent post entitled Come all thee clemencies, I noted that the holiday season is a common time for clemency grants (and not just for turkeys), and I reviewed encouraging clemency developments in a number of states.
But this Newsday article details that New York Governor George Pataki has decided not to grant clemency to any state prison inmates this year. In a post entitled Pataki the Grinch, TalkLeft does an effective job criticizing Gov. Pataki for his decision.
