Conrad’s Clemency Con

“Conrad Black is pinning his hopes on clemency from U.S. President George W. Bush as a last-ditch effort to get out of jail early, and he wants his former publishing company to foot the legal bill,” the Toronto Globe and Mail reports.

That’s right – Black wants the Sun-Times Media Group to pay the legal fees associated with his clemency bid.

Apparently Jim Thompson didn’t offer him pro bono services like he’s done with George Ryan. Thompson, of course, was on the audit committee of the Sun-Times’s former corporate board when Black was looting the company.

    If Connie gets a pardon from either Bush or Obama, it will immediately be compared to the Marc Rich pardon, which we all know was bought & paid for.
    And while Bush just doesn’t give a damn about anything anymore, I really doubt that Obama would start out by destroying himself at the start.

  2. Why let His Lardship out? He did the crime and now has to do the time. Besides, if his articles in the Nazional Post and other rags are to be believed, he’s loving it in Coleman prison. Maybe now that he’s found Bubba and has been free of that Likudist hag wife for the past nine months, he’s beginning to realise what really matters in life.
