Scooter Libby Juror: I’d Like Him to Get a Pardon


Scooter Libby Juror to Matthews: I’d Like Him to Get a Pardon
March 7, 2007, Mark Finkelstein

The headline is that Ann Redington, Libby juror #10, wants Scooter to get a pardon. But there’s actually a bigger story. It is Redington herself. If you have a chance to watch a replay of her appearance on this afternoon’s Hardball, billed as an exclusive, I’d urge you to do so. She is enough to renew one’s faith in the goodness and intelligence of our fellow Americans.

As Matthews observed, Redington demonstrated an impressive ability to separate the wheat from the chaff in the trial, and appeared open, honest and without any political ax to grind.

View video here. The clip is longer than usual because I consider Redington’s comments to be of historical and cultural significance.
