Haley Barbour Scandals & Controversies
  • On his last day as Mississippi governor, conservative Republican Haley Barbour surprised everyone by granting 208 pardons, clemency or early release for people convicted of crimes including murder, rape and armed robbery. 19 of the 208 were convicted of murder, 4 of which were inmates who worked at the governor's mansion doing odd jobs under a program that rewarded good behavior. The controversy is not in the pardon's themselves, but in the sheer number of pardons, comparative to just a handle by all other Governors preceding him.
