A Felon Getting Presidential Pardons Left and Right

It pays to be a felon? If you don’t think these things are flying fast and loose (and free), consider the case of one Ronald Alan Mohrhoff. Mohrhoff was convicted of unlawful use of a telephone in furtherance of a narcotics felony, possession of cocaine in 1984. He was sentenced to one year in prison followed by five years probation with 2,500 hours of community service, and sources say he served it all.

Bush also pardoned 39 others, working quickly to break the record number of pardons set by Reagan and Clinton in previous non-Bush-family presidencies.

Felons from all walks of life, assuming they are white, have a new lease on life as of these pardons. Though none are walking out of jail because of it, the criminal convictions of these felons are being unwritten, essentially giving them a clear slate, though the millions they each have in the bank might suggest they already have their own exoneration in hand.

Of course, Bush gained ounces of fame and last-minute credibility when his pardon of Isaac Robert Toussie was revoked, following revelations his father donated tens of thousands to RNC, GOP and other Republican candidates.

Bush also pardoned Johnson Heyward Tisdale, who was convicted in 1994 of food stamp fraud. Despite the seriousness of his offense, and his total lack of grounds for pardon, he is now a man free of federal conviction.
