Romney opposed pardons, a policy challenged by Iraq war veteran
Oh, but that title is misleading my friends..... here are the nut graphs......
BOSTON --Decorated Iraq war veteran Anthony Circosta seemed like an ideal candidate for a pardon from then-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for his boyhood conviction for a BB gun shooting.
Romney said no -- twice -- despite the recommendation of the state's Board of Pardons.
At age 13, Circosta was convicted of assault for shooting another boy in the arm with a BB gun, a shot that didn't break the skin. Circosta worked his way through college, joined the Army National Guard and led a platoon of 20 soldiers in Iraq's deadly Sunni triangle.
In 2005, as he was serving in Iraq, he sought a pardon to fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer.
Fine then, Romney is an ass. An ass with convictions apparently.
"Gov. Romney's view is that it would take a compelling set of circumstances to set aside the punishment and guilt resulting from a criminal trial," said Romney aide Eric Fehrnstrom, who added he was not familiar with Circosta's case. "The power to pardon should only be used in extraordinary circumstances."
Wrong-o kids. Meet Mr Jackass.
While he refused all requests for pardons as governor, Romney has said that could change if he's elected president.
Asked in last week's debate if he would consider pardoning Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who was convicted of lying and obstructing the CIA leak investigation, Romney said: "It's worth looking at that. I will study it very closely if I'm lucky enough to be president. And I'd keep that option open."
Soooooo, Mr Jackass Romney refused to pardon a DECORATED WAR VET WHO WAS CONVICTED OF BRUISING ANOTHER KID WITH A BB, and is CONSIDERING PARDONING A MULTIPLE FELON THAT ENDANGERED THE LIVES OF CAREER PROFESSIONAL COVERT AGENTS./end rant
