Indicted DeLay wants presidential pardon for Scooter Libby

Former Texas Congressman Tom DeLay, who resigned as Republican Majority Leader after being indicted on state campaign finance charges, is calling for the presidential pardoning of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the former aide to Vice President Cheney who was convicted earlier this week on multiple counts of perjury and obstruction of justice.

"The pardon authority is given to the Chief Executive so that he can use his judgment to even up the scales of justice in order to show mercy, or in some cases an acknowledgement by the Chief Executive that the law enforcement roll [sic] that the Executive Branch plays has gone askew," DeLay writes at his eponymous blog. "In the celebrated case of Mr. Lewis Libby, the prosecution pulled out one of its oldest and most shop-worn tricks. That is: setting up multiple perjury and obstruction of justice traps into which government officials, placed under extraordinary investigatory pressure, might fall."
