1200 requests for parole, commutation, or clemency per year.

dukakis should have used good excuses like these.

Glen Green, who was sentenced to prison for life after confessing that he had raped and killed a teenage girl. After beating the woman with nunchucks, he violated her almost lifeless body, ran over her with his car and buried her in a swamp. But yet another preacher friend of Huckabee's named Rev. Johnny Jackson somehow persuaded the governor that this incredibly brutal killing had been an "accident" -- and that Green had repented, come to Jesus and therefore should be freed.
So you think Huck made a good judgement call in this case?

Willie Horton was a convicted murderer.
Maurice Clemmons was a convicted burglar.
