  • No. I don't really think that anyone should be pardoned.

  • nope. Politicians should start having to pay for their crimes. They get off too easy as it is.

  • Yes.
    Why? Stevens didn't get fair trial. It was like kind of witch hunt. Last week the FBI agent who was working in Stevens case come out and said he didn't get fair treatment.

  • If he is a democrat, I think he needs to get another trial due to the recent events of the Seigalman case in AL being a set up from the government to get him kicked out of the the running for governor again. He was one of the best governors that AL has ever had!! I have always believed that he was innocent and he got out and now his case is being investigated by the sepream court!!

  • There are many things that were questionable in the Stevens case. I think he should have a new trial.
