The whole thing is very odd, even down to the story CNN has on its website. Tom Freeland over at NMissCommentor.com has a good look at it. Not sure where the story heads from here, but there are obviously some loose ends to tie up.

So what exactly did Governor and First Lady Barbour do to help the pardoned murderers?
CNN's Anderson Cooper broke a story last night that is, well, odd. In short, it appears that the former First Lady went so far as to somehow assist in the financing of two cars for two of the trustees that were about to be pardoned. Additionally, it looks as though the former Governor arranged for some of the trustees to get drivers licenses while still in MDOC custody.
