Update on Clemency Petitions

Dear Blog Readers:

I just read a news article today that may be of interest:

Since taking office in 2009, Governor Quinn has made decisions on over 3,000 Executive Clemency Petitions, most of which were filed when former Gov. Blagojevich was in office.

Just 3 days ago, Gov. Quinn granted another 126 clemency petitions, and denied 185. The 311 people's names were published online along with the offense that no longer is on their record.

Again, if you haven't written a letter or sent an email to Governor Quinn in support of Paul's petition for clemency, please do it soon!  And, yes, prayers are requested and appreciated.
