Good news. Governor Quinn is attempting to decrease the backlog of clemency petitions that stacked up during the former governor's tenure. Even better news-- one in three petitions is granted! Prior thought was that only 2% of petitions were granted. http://www.cleanrecordillinois.com/blog/governor-quinn-decides-on-311-clemency-petitions-in-advance-of-thanksgiving
