To quote a lawyer friend: “This is a very neat summary written by dear Duke friend Peter Coyle. I had recalled the 1915 US Supreme Court case from law school days, but could not remember the case name, and did not know the annotation about Gerald Ford: ‘In 1915, in the Burdick case, the US Supreme Court ruled that the granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt and accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt. While a pardon prevents criminal penalties it can be used as evidence in civil lawsuits and administrative penalty rulings. After Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, Ford carried a card with the key phrase from that decision in his wallet so he could quote it if questioned about why he had issued the pardon.’” So keep that in mind, when people claim a pardoned person isn’t a criminal: EVERY single ONE of them, WHO ACCEPTS a PARDON, ADMITS GUILT!
