Ernie, please...

If KY Governor Ernie Fletcher is really confident that his staff are innocent of applying unfair - even illegal - hiring practices, why did he issue pardons for all of them?

And, if he's so sure that this was a good, honest, legal move, why did he choose to do so at a time when it's likely the news would have gotten lost in the coverage of hurricane Katrina?

And, if he's so smart, why didn't he realise that the law only allows a governor to pardon convicted criminals and not accused persons who have not yet stood trial?
