Pardon Me, Bush: Mark Cuban And Insider Trading

by | 17th, November 2008

MARK Cuban is up before the Beak on a charge of insider dealing. Who he? Jamie Wearing tells us:

Couldn’t happen to a bigger jerk. The pompous owner of the Dallas Mavericks and current employer of Dan Rather has been charged with insider trading.

Over on ABC News:

A record number of felons are seeking presidential pardons or commutations as President George W. Bush enters the final months of his term, creating one of the largest backlogs in clemency applications in recent history.

 Those seeking pardons are:

Michael Milken, the junk-bond king and financier convicted of securities fraud in 1990; John Walker Lindh, the so-called American Taliban; Randy “Duke” Cunningham, the former California congressman who was convicted of tax evasion; and Edwin Edwards, the former governor of Louisiana convicted in 2000 of racketeering, according to the Justice Department.

Wonder if Cuban wants the whole thing sped up so that, well, he can get pardoned quicker?

Who should be pardoned? Can Bush pardon himself..? Who would you like pardoned?
