    Regardless of what a scum Pawlenty is, that pardon is NOT something he should be slammed for. Did he have any reason to believe that the guy would, many years later, commit the crimes he did later? NO... at least not unless you think a 19-year-old having sex with his 14-year-old girlfriend, then marrying her and STAYING married for many years, is some horrendous crime. The crimes he's alleged to have committed recently, as bad as they are, had (as far as I can tell) NOTHING to do with the fact that he was pardoned for the much earlier "statutory rape".
