The Boston Herald reports that Tom Finnernan failed in his attempt to receive a pardon from George Bush. Instead of pardoning the former House Speaker, the departing president opted to pardon two border guards who shot a Mexican drug dealer.
Remarkably, Finnernan thought it was a good idea to enlist the aid of four former Massachusetts governors in his quest to win a pardon: William Weld, Paul Cellucci and Jane Swift, and Michael Dukakis. You got that right, Finnernan tried to win something by getting the help of four of the biggest losers ever. Way to go, Tommy!
