President Bush Pardons Two Colorado Springs Men

By |

President Bush granted 15 pardons yesterday. Among them were two men from Colorado Springs.

The White House announcement, however, did not explain why President Bush pardoned Jerry Lynn Moldenhauer and Thomas Donald Moldenhauer for “knowingly selling migratory bird parts.” They each received three years probation and a $1,000 fine. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act prohibits the possession or sale of migratory birds, dead or alive, as well as their feathers, eggs or nests.

The Moldenhauers were prosecuted in 1994. To date, President Bush has granted about one-half the number of pardons issued by Presidents Clinton and Reagan.
