Juan Alias pardoned

Recently I shared a comment about a pardon that I find questionable that Illinois Governor Pat Quinn issued to Chicago First Ward Politico Juan “Johnny” Elias, a man once convicted of crimes of stealing, drugs and vote fraud.

Yes, I’ll say it: Jon Huntsman is the only Republican (currently vying for his party’s presidential nomination) that could even remotely stand a chance of defeating Barack Obama. There is no doubt in my mind that every other candidate, each of which are wracked with crippling character flaws, will be utterly trounced by Obama’s (There’s […]
