"Any Degenerate Gamblers, What's Vegas Say These Odds Are?"



Could Joe Arpaio Break the Presidential Pardon?
"...the controversial sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona—convicted of criminal contempt of court—has decided to try to clear his name, asking a court to vacate his original conviction entirely. (Normally, a pardon protects the pardoned person from punishment, but leaves the fact of the conviction on the books.) Arpaio might indeed get his record wiped clean. But in asking a court to vacate his conviction, Arpaio is inviting another possibility as well: that the court will decide his pardon was not valid in the first place. If that happens, the pardon would mark a new development in the law: judicial willingness to limit the presidential pardon power itself."
