Begging Bush’s pardon

President George W. Bush granted 15 pardons yesterday, bringing the total reprieves issued during his two terms to 157.

Unless he goes on a pardon-granting spree in the last few months of his administration, he is on track to grant roughly half the number of pardons granted during the Reagan or Clinton administrations.
