THis shit seems very swampy. Let's hope this RINO gets what's coming to him. Sadly this news story is sadly lacking in facts so it is not possible to make a good call

Bevin pardoned Patrick Brian Baker, who was convicted of homicide and other crimes. Baker's family raised $21,500 for Bevin at a political fundraiser and Baker's brother and sister-in-law also gave $4,000 to Bevin’s campaign on the day of the fundraiser.

How much does a pardon go for in KY? Sounds like there was a real Cyber Monday deal going on!

Stunned. That is really disgusting. Throwing a temper tantrum because of an election. There must be something in the KY Constitution regarding these pardons. This action is reprehensible.
