Surely if he has sold 100 pardons for 2 Mil each, that 200 Mil should be paid back to the US treasury. It has to be illegal, using his position for profit. Isn't there a law about that?

Brian May.
Pete Townshend.
Mike Campbell.
John Entwistle.
Dickey Betts

Entwistle is there because he described himself as a guitarist. And he made the bass guitar talk.

Also: Bonamassa. Eric, Page, Prince, Satriani, Randy Bachmann.

If he is found guilty in criminal cases, whether federal or state, surely that would preclude him running for office again. Fit and proper person and all that. If he is convicted of criminal charges, surely that would be electoral poison if the GOP supported him running for office again.
