4:05pm ET - Over two years ago, a
series published in The Washington Post
by ProPublica reporters Dafna Linzer and Jennifer LaFleur showed that
applicants for pardons who were white were far more likely to receive clemency
than those who were black. Since the publication of that investigation, the
government has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a study, but despite
the vast amounts tax payer money spent on the project the pardons system
remains unchanged. Joining us today to
discuss our broken and racially biased pardon system is Stephen Engelberg, the Editor in Chief for ProPublica. You can also follow Stephen on twitter.
